For your case assignment this session the organization you will be reviewing is Dish. You will be considering how this organization competes within a very competitive industry.
After reviewing the book section, presentation materials, and additional readings, consider the organization’s mission/vision/values and key stakeholders and discuss the organization’s position and niche in the competitive environment.
Make sure you present the company’s mission, vision, and/or values (whatever the company makes available to the public along these lines), and discuss the company’s most important primary stakeholders. Indicate whether you believe the company’s mission, vision, and/or value statements are in alignment with stakeholder needs. That is, does the organization treat key stakeholders in a fashion that is in alignment with its posted mission/vision/values?
Also, is the organization’s mission/vision/values in alignment with the volatile environment in which it competes?
