  • Brad Shipley
  • Gita Govahi


The aim of this paper is to provide an experiential learning activity that would fit well within the curriculum of a management course. Omega is a Video Game company that is a leader of innovation in that industry, but they consistently fail to get their new products out to market on time. Participants play executive roles or consultant roles. Consultants are divided into teams. Each consulting team has the opportunity to collect data from the executives by way of interviews. Then consultants develop a presentation with recommendations for organizational change. Participants must consider a wide variety of Organizational Development issues.
