1. Historical Background
Grameenphone started its journey with the Village Phone program: a pioneering initiative to empower rural women of Bangladesh. The name Grameenphone translates to “Rural phone”. Starting its operations on March 26, 1997, the Independence Day of Bangladesh, Grameenphone has come a long way. Grameenphone pioneered the then breakthrough initiative of mobile to mobile telephony and became the first and only operator to cover 98% of the country’s people with network. Since its inception Grameenphone has built the largest cellular network in the country with over 8500 base stations . Presently, nearly 99 percent of the country's population is within the coverage area of the Grameenphone network. Grameenphone has always been a pioneer in introducing new products and services in the local telecom market. GP was the first company to introduce GSM technology in Bangladesh when it launched its services in March 1997. Grameenphone was also the first telecommunication operator in Bangladesh to introduce the pre-paid service in September 1999. It established the first 24-hour Call Center, introduced value-added services such as VMS, SMS, fax and data transmission services, international roaming service, WAP, SMS-based push-pull services, EDGE, personal ring back tone and many other products and services. In October 2013 the company launched 3G services commercially. The entire Grameenphone network is 3G/EDGE/GPRS enabled, allowing access to high-speed Internet and data services from anywhere within the coverage area. There are currently over 7 million 3G/EDGE/GPRS users in the Grameenphone network. Today, Grameenphone is the leading and largest telecommunications service provider in Bangladesh with more than 47.64 million subscribers as of January 2014.

I can see that the problems Steele Enterprises Company continues to face is that the teams in the company do not get along well and some of them even keep watching for opportunity to retaliate at each other especially Richard Leeman and Donna Olson. They are top chief executives and if they keep fighting, rocking the boat, it would bring confusion and conflict to the company and the company will not hit success easily without cooperation of the teams in it. Brown noted, “The organization requires cooperation among its departments and divisions if it is to be effective” (Brown, 2011. P. 296). I am sure that when teams or leaders hold bitterness toward each other, they focus on their own, personal interest rather than seeking fulfilling the company’s objectives 2. Another important matter that I realize is that Richard Leeman and Donna Olson do not realize the importance of interdependence. If they keeping fighting until either one of them become a loser and a winner, both of them would be losers. Why I said this because I see that they are top leaders and each of them leads many subordinates under their leadership. If either one of them must get fired or quit his or her job because unfair issue involved many of their good employees will feel discouraged because they are......

Regulation and Investment: Case Study of Bangladeshregulation and Investment: Case Study of Bangladesh

...World Dialogue on Regulation for Network Economies Regulation and Investment: Case study of Bangladesh Harsha de Silva[1] and Abu Saeed Khan[2] August 2004 Abstract The paper considers the available evidence in determining a relationship, if any, in the Telecom Regulatory Environment [TRE] of Bangladesh and investments in to its telecommunications industry over the last decade. TRE is segmented in to market entry, access to scarce resources, interconnection, tariff regulation and regulation of anti-competitive practices while investments are all non-divestiture foreign and domestic private and public investment. The TRE in Bangladesh is found to be wanting in all defined aspects. Interconnection is the worst of the five components, where a mobile only parallel network is being created due to regulatory ineffectiveness where almost ninety percent of mobile users do not have access to a fixed phone. Investments in to the fixed sector in Bangladesh dominated by the state owned virtual monopoly have been sorely inadequate and continue to be dictated by the funds availability [or lack thereof] of the Government. The mobile sector on the other hand has seen some amount of investments flowing in led by the widely acclaimed GrameenPhone. However, once standardized to compare across the region, it is found, even though using imperfect data to compare, that the reason for this flow......

Success Enterprises Case Study

...SUCCESS ENTERPRISES CASE ANALYSIS CORE PROBLEM- Poor Management Skills which is minimizing the level of production with the company. SATELLITE PROBLEMS The satellite problems stem from the lack of performing the four functions of management which is Planning, Organizing, Leading and Controlling. Planning Planning creates procedures, rules and guidelines for achieving a stated objective or goal. It is important because it provides direction, reduces risks and wastage, facilitates decision making and also establishes standards for controlling. Mrs. Deen had no plans or policies implemented for the suspension or termination of workers when pilfering occurred or when work wasn’t done in an effective or efficient manner, neither did she had a plan which would help guide her with the best ways to structure, organize and control the company so the goals can be met effectively. Organizing Organizing is the process of bringing together physical, financial and human resources and developing productive relationship amongst them for achievement of organizational goals. The structure in which Mrs. Deen’s company was organized caused problems with the way the work was being carried out because the workers routes were changed on a daily basis it allowed them not to be as productive as they should and it also allowed pilfering to occur. How the staff were supervise caused many problems within the company also, because the supervisors rotated on a weekly basis between supervising the......
