Critical reflection is necessary for the company to remain competitive in their businesses in Australia. Three forms of learning perspectives are presented by Moon (2004) which are assimilation, accommodation and constructivism. Continuous learning is essential for the organization, and it would help the organization stay strong in the context of competition, and other external factors also influence the company. In assimilation, the processing of new material is considered. In accommodation, the assimilated concepts are then given a form of cognitive structure and in constructivism; a unique perception of the world is created. Now applying this form of reflective learning for the case of Holden, it can be said that at the managerial level a continuous form of critical reflection on the external state in which the organization operated must have been monitored. Continuous feedback from the external environment must have been used here. Such knowledge assimilation would have led to accommodation, where strategic structures could be developed for the company. These are the cognitive structures needed for the company and finally a better improved perception of the automobile market and industry in Australia would have been created for Holden. Now the last two concepts which are critical for deeper learning could have a positive implication for Holden only if reflective strategies were also followed with it. For instance, consider the reflection strategy of Mintzberg. Some of the key points mentioned here are wondering, probing, analysing, synthesizing and connecting (Mintzberg, and Gosling, 2002; Mintzberg, 1973). Of these, wondering and probing could be part of the knowledge assimilation and accommodation. As the knowledge is gathered, it is critical that the managers probe the data, and also identify for newer trends in the industry. Now based on the collected data, it is necessary to build cognitive structures, for this the managers have to work with their staff on analysing the data for trends and how different strategies could be applicable for different trends. Here, reflection can also be accompanied by collaborative peer reviews of different managers to check if they are all on a coordinated right track.
C. Innovative thinking and entrepreneurial orientation
In the data collected from most media reports, it is seen that almost all the major automobile giants in Australia faced similar issues. The issues arose from many external factors that were out of the control of the companies such as the economic issues, supplier issues and more. Where all companies were facing similar issues, innovative out of the box thinking could have helped Holden. Now in the case of companies such as Ford and Holden, most of the established consumer base is from the Australian families only (Dowling, 2014). This by itself is a problem, as it would be difficult to improve demand in consumer segments if this is the case. Secondly, companies like Holden also face issues because of more demand given to either the right hand drive versus left hand drive requirements in the motor industry. Now in incorporating innovative thinking and entrepreneurial orientation, the company would be able to think differently in understanding these demands. It could have adopted such ideas like eco-friendly cars which are increasing in global demand or alternatively it could have invested in other manufacturing end entities instead of being in the main stream end (Simpson et al, 2007). Such innovative strategies could have pushed the company to sustain better even given negative macro-environment effects.
The purpose of this report is to present a case study analysis of Holden in the context of its current critical situation where it looks like the company is heading towards a complete shutdown of its operations. The report primarily discussed how the company could have worked on its external environment scanning and how this could have revealed ways for Holden to improve on its strategies. Some of the ways it could have done this is by becoming more aware of the dropping demands trend, the supplier issues, the issues in labour and unions etc. Secondly the report analysed for how critical reflection would have helped improve managerial foresight and finally, the innovative and entrepreneurial undertaking for Holden and implications are discussed.
