presentation 1

I thought all the presentations today were very well researched and presented.  I learned many different things about the organizations and furthered my understanding of how each organization offers and produces a product efficiently.  I believe Andre's presentation on the University of Minnesota Men's basketball team was very informative and gave plenty of insight on how the U has changed the culture from a losing program to a winning one.  Andre clearly laid out the structure and show how having a centralized organization, especially in team sport organization, is pivotal to keep everyone on the same page and maintain the philosophy that works.  I know that Tubby Smith comes from a good program and understands what it takes to win; I think it is a testament to the leadership qualities that Tubby poses that has turned around this program very quickly.  It just shows how having a stable structure with well delegated roles is essential to run an organization that has time constraints, especially at the collegiate level.
