Galaxy Television: Melding Worlds or Cultural Big Bang? Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

Suitable for MBA, EMBA, GEMBA, and executive education programs, this case explores the early days of a possible international leader's career.

Given the blend of cultures Goh wondered how she could generate the trust and coherence the members would need for profitable collaboration.

Would she herself act differently? More broadly, Goh wondered whether she could continue to attack the challenges inherent in living abroad and working for a multinational company. Was the melange of cultures in the pressure cooker of a multinational start-up company too much change? Was Galaxy's array of cultures too disparate to combine and lead? Could she find a method to meld those and her worlds at Galaxy? Or would Galaxy Television be her "big bang"?
