- In your own words, how would you describe the culture of the US-born workers employed to work in the Fuyao factory?
- How would you describe the culture of the Chinese-born workers and management who were brought to Ohio by the new owners to work in – and manage – the Fuyao factory?
- What are some of the issues that ensued as these two constituencies worked side-by-side in the new Dayton, OH factory?
- Consider at least one additional OB concept from this course, and discuss how it relates to the situation in this movie.
- What did you learn about organizations from watching this film?
