This assignment is based on the following case study:

You and your human resources team work for a hi-tech gaming firm in Northern California called Fighting Games. Fighting Games has offices across Europe and the Pacific Rim and more than 1200 employees in more than 50 countries. Among the biggest challenges the members and leaders of each office face is scheduling meetings in asynchronous time frames. The New York team and the Shanghai team have been assigned to work on the same project. The New York team is leading the story line and the graphics. The Shanghai team is in charge of special effects and overall integration of the game. Meetings are scheduled twice a week. The teams have been meeting, but both teams have been complaining to the executive team. The New York team has been arriving late and running the meetings much longer than they were scheduled to last. This has happened over a dozen times. The relationship between the teams seems strained and not long ago something surprising happened: the Shanghai team canceled a meeting times. The relationship between the teams seems strained and not long ago something surprising happened: the Shanghai team canceled a meeting after the New York Team had arrived late to the last three.

Consider the following points as you prepare for your assignment:

  • There are two cultures involved. Although the American team is multicultural, they have all lived in the US most of their lives. The Chinese team is comprised of all Chinese employees.
