Traditional fishers  use nonmechanized boats, which would be ideal for the foldable boat’s  entry into the market. Laws and regulations surrounding the use of  nonmechanized boats favor importing foldable boats, which would be easy  for fishers to carry from home to the water. The business climate in  India is open to new partnerships to improve the fishing experience for  those who preserve the natural ecosystem with nonmotorized boats. The  National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB) promotes the use of natural  fishing equipment to reduce disruption to the fishing ecosystem in India  (National Fisheries Development Board, n.d.).

IntroductionToday’s  business environment is characterized by competitive intensity that  requires innovative thinking and strategic decision-making competencies.  As a business professional, it is essential that you apply the  principles of design thinking and strategic decision-making to  positively influence the effectiveness of a business in its markets. In  this task, you will provide a market entry overview, using the following  scenario.ScenarioA  U.S. fishing boat manufacturer is known throughout the United States  for its innovative approach to product design, lean manufacturing, and  responsive customer service since its start three years ago. The mission  statement of the company is “We will provide the most innovative  customer-driven design and growth in the industry.” The founders’ ideals  for the company are described in the vision statement: “We will be the  most sustainable company in the industry.” The company’s ethical  statement that guides all conduct and decision-making is “We will make  decisions that are sustainable for customers and the environment.”

The  company’s founders have created an organizational culture of  innovation. They have provided incentives for employees’ creative ideas  and created testing laboratories where customers use the products and  provide design feedback. The founders have also invited innovators in  other industries, such as gaming and information technology, to improve  on the designs. The founders have cultivated a company culture in which  employees and founders are considered equal partners. The company  structure is decentralized, and all employees can access the founders at  any time for collaboration, shared decision-making, or relationship  building. All company decisions are evaluated by all employees to ensure  that everyone is committed to the decisions.

The company has  identified an emerging global market opportunity in India for its  products. Successful sales in India could represent a critical moment  for the company if the company establishes strategic partnerships that  will increase the likelihood of product success. The founders hope to  capture profits and market share and expand into other parts of Asia  within the first year of selling products in India.

Research  indicates market potential for the company’s sales in India because of  the importance of the fishing industry in the country. Fishing and  aquaculture are primary industries in the coastal regions of India.  Economic zones have been established to support the over 14 million  people who are an important part of the fishing industry. This industry  makes up 1% of the nation’s gross domestic product and 7% of global fish  exports (Hanko Hackberry Group, n.d.).

The company’s goal of the  market expansion into India is to be the first foldable fishing boat  manufacturer reaching the country. An origami-inspired foldable fishing  boat is the company’s most popular product. This boat comes designed as a  plastic carrying case that unfolds into the water like an origami paper  boat. This boat is suitable for uses in calm water, and the boat can be  recycled. The product retails for U.S.$200.

Traditional fishers  use nonmechanized boats, which would be ideal for the foldable boat’s  entry into the market. Laws and regulations surrounding the use of  nonmechanized boats favor importing foldable boats, which would be easy  for fishers to carry from home to the water. The business climate in  India is open to new partnerships to improve the fishing experience for  those who preserve the natural ecosystem with nonmotorized boats. The  National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB) promotes the use of natural  fishing equipment to reduce disruption to the fishing ecosystem in India  (National Fisheries Development Board, n.d.).

The U.S. boat  manufacturer’s founders met with the NFDB to request an endorsement for  their foldable boats because of the product’s sustainable design and  net-zero environmental impact. The founders discovered that the NFDB  would only endorse the boat if it was made of plastics used in India, in  order to reduce the waste products in the nation’s landfills.

This  endeavor would require the U.S. company to make a significant  investment in India. The company would need to purchase or build a  manufacturing facility, or it would need to contract with a facility  owner to secure a manufacturing location. It would need to employ Indian  workers. Lastly, the company would have to manufacture a new foldable  boat made from used plastics in India with an environmentally friendly  waterproof coating.

The new foldable boat could be designed in  several ways, and the company would need to test a series of paper  products and waterproof coatings to determine which would be suitable  for fishers in India. The fishers range in age from 13 to 70, so the  design would need to be comfortable and portable enough for all fishers  in this target group.

The company decides to hire Indian fishers  to help design the product to reach this market. These fishers will  provide qualitative, open-ended conversations and data that will be  valuable in communicating the product’s features and benefits to other  fishers. The product will be tested by a variety of fishers that  represent different sectors of the fishing industry, different regions,  and different cultural segments. Testing will provide generalizable,  qualitative data about the product use and effectiveness.Requirements

Chapter 7-8 Critical Thinking Questions

Read the following case study and answer the questions that follow.

Respond to at least two of your peers with meaningful content.

Gore’s Flat Structure Works Well

Imagine an organization with more than 10,000 employees working in 30 countries around the world—with no hierarchy structure. W. L. Gore & Associates, headquartered in Newark, Delaware, is a model of unusual business practices. Wilbert Gore, who left Dupont to explore new uses for Teflon, started the company in 1958. Best known for its breathable, weatherproof Gore-Tex fabric, Glide dental floss, and Elixir guitar strings, the company has no bosses, no titles, no departments, and no formal job descriptions. There is a managerial hierarchy at Gore, and top management treats employees, called associates, as peers.

In 2005, the company named 22-year associate Terri Kelly as its new chief executive officer. Unlike large public corporations, Gore’s announcement was made without much fanfare. Today, more than 12 years later, Kelly continues as chief executive but is the first to admit that it’s not about the CEO at Gore—it’s about the people who work there and their relationships with one another.

The company focuses on its products and company values rather than on individuals. Committees, comprised of employees, make major decisions such as hiring, firing, and compensation. They even set top executives’ compensation. Employees work on teams, which are switched around every few years. In fact, all employees are expected to make minor decisions instead of relying on the “boss” to make them. “We’re committed to how we get things done,” Kelly says. “That puts a tremendous burden on leaders because it’s easier to say ‘Just do it’ than to explain the rationale. But in the long run, you’ll get much better results because people are making a commitment.”

Because no formal lines of authority exist, employees can speak to anyone in the company at any time. This arrangement also forces employees to spend considerable time developing relationships. As one employee described it, instead of trying to please just one “boss,” you have to please everyone. Several years ago the company underwent a “strategy refresh,” conducting surveys and discussions with employees about how they fit into the organization’s culture. Not surprisingly, there was a cultural divide based on multiple generations of workers and length of service stature, which Kelly and her associates have worked hard to overcome. She realizes that not everyone will become a “lifer” at Gore, but recognizes the importance of younger employees who have helped the company become more tech-savvy in communications and stay well-connected in a fast-moving business world.

The informal organizational structure continues to work well. With revenues of $3 billion, the company produces thousands of advanced technology products for the electronics, industrial, fabrics, and medical markets. Its corporate structure fosters innovation and has been a significant contributor to associate satisfaction. Employee turnover is a low 3 percent a year, and the company can choose new associates from the thousands of job applications it receives annually. In 2017, Gore was named one of the 12 legends on Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For.” These companies have made Fortune’s list for all 20 years the magazine has published its annual “Best” rankings.
