Remember the Titans is a film based on true events that took place in Alexandria, Virginia in 1971. Two groups of people were forced together by the desegregation of T.C Williams High School. Despite the indefinite integration of the black and white students, the town was still living in a racially divided society. African American football coach Herman Boone’s arrival to T.C Williams further complicated things. In an attempt to tranquilize the escalating racial tensions he was given the head coaching position in hopes to placate the African /American community.
Success can be described in several different ways depending on the person. It is what most humans strive for in their everyday tasks. A person, animal, or even a plant could be looked at as successful, but what they are trying to be successful at may be moral or immoral. One might effectively compose music or one could effectively destroy a car. How someone views actions taken is how they will characterize how much of a success is accomplished. An individual could set a goal and strive to attain that goal and by striving to achieve others may look at the person as successful since they are working hard to accomplish what their goal is, but the person trying to accomplish the goal may not feel like a success until they reach the goal.
After the initial practice round, we understood that in order for our team to be effective we needed to look deeper into our situation and have a complete understanding of the market, the dynamic nature of corporate strategy and its short and long-term effects before we made any decisions. While we split the various sections up between group members, all of our decisions were made as a collective group; because we were aware that a bad decision in one segment could have severe implication for another. Over the course of each round, we were very conscience of how the consumer’s taste and preferences were changing within the market. With the knowledge and understanding how crucial this was we made it a priority to adjust our numbers that provided us

Hi Meghan! In response to your question, yes. Businesses most adapt their business model and business plan to be able to remain competitive. Many business have failed in doing this and their products have become obsoletes. They forget that the marketplace keeps changing and so their customers’ needs. In order to provide satisfaction to customers, businesses must adapt and adjust what needs to be changed to meet their customers’ needs. Another factor that changes the marketplace is the entrance of new competition.

In 1965, Bruce Tuckman proposed the “forming–storming–norming–performing” model of group development, of which encompasses the chronological phases necessary and inevitable for a team to grow, problem solve, and perform to its highest capacity (Tuckman, 1965). The first phase, forming, is the initial step in a team’s development that inevitably determines whether or not the team will experience success or failure in their future endeavors. The forming phase, much like its name suggests, encompasses the first instances of a teams meeting where plans regarding their task are discussed and agreed upon. In the “Remember the Titans” video, this stage is depicted by all of the members of the football team coming together for the first time, and eventually meeting their coach. Storming is the second phase in effective team building, and it is also a point in which many disputes between team members can arise. In the “Remember the Titans” video clip, tension among team members was quite evident and primarily racially driven. Tuckman (1965) suggests that this is one of the most important phases in the cycle, simply based on the notion that many team members are unable to resolve interpersonal conflicts they may have between team members. If such conflicts persist, it seems logical to assume that a
