...Vodafone Case 9-14 The problem that Vodafone had, as I understand it, is that their business model at the time was chaos. It is a bit surprising to me that a company of that magnitude could grow to be so large with an apparent lack of communication and understanding. The problem with the people in this situation seems to have been the lack of supreme leadership, no one was there to instill common practices, so each company just sort of did things their own way. The problem with the organization was that there really wasn’t any of which to speak, which goes right back to my point about the lack of leadership. It was still an “Organization”, but there very little about that was organized as a whole. The irony when talking about the technology factors is that we’re talking about a company that deals in mobile communications. One would assume that a company doing as well as they are and as big as they are, would be ahead of the curve, technologically speaking. It reminds me of the saying, “You can’t see the forest through the trees.” Luckily for Vodafone, they were able to identify the shortcomings within the infrastructure and rectify the situation before it really started to negatively affect business. 9-15 My understanding of the amount of time needed to effectively make the transformation involves the size of the company, the span with which they cover the globe, and to piggyback on the previous point, the different cultures involved within the company....
