There are 5 stages, Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing and Adjourning. The movie Remember the Titans was very inspiring especially because it is based on a true story. This movie showed all of Tuckman’s 5 stages. Stages of Group Development The first stage is forming; this is when members get to know one another. This is one of the most important stages. In the movie, this occurs when all of the football players are in the gym ready to meet Coach Boone. All the different race groups were together. In this interaction, the athletes have come together for the first time, they are unsure of their roles on the team, and they are also unsure what to expect from each other and the coach. Coach Boone asks Petey whether or not he likes football. The coach is very directive he tells the team “This is no democracy”. (YouTube) After they went to Gettysburg College for Camp, the coach made them sit in the same positions they had on the way to camp. This was one of his ways to form the team. The team walks to camp together, this is the first time we see them grouped whites and blacks together as a team, which signifies they have finished the forming stage.

This was the same year that T. C. Williams High School located in Alexander Virginia was integrated. This is the setting for the movie Remember the Titans, staring Denzel Washington who portrays Herman Boone the head coach of the Titans. Herman Boone is brought in as an assistant coach to join the all white coaching staff. When Herman Boone is appointed head coach over a wining white coach he is reluctant to accept because the same things had happened to him when a white coach had been appointed over him in South Carolina. He finally accepts the head coach position when he sees that the black residents see him as a symbol of pride and respect that is lacking in their community. The movie starts with a riot after a white storeowner kills a black teenager. This incident underscores the racial tensions that exist as a result of the desegregation of the high school. Coach Boone has to overcome the racism within the team, the coaching staff, and the community to build a winning racially mixed football team.

...Interpersonal Conflict in Remember the Titans I choose the movie – remember the titans. It is an inspirational movie, making my blood boiling from the beginning to the end and teaching us that we are all equal no matter what race you are. It talks about not only the games, but also racial conflicts, friendship and the significance of life. The story goes like that: in the early 1970s, two schools in Alexandria Virginia integrate forming T.C. Williams High School. The Caucasian head coach of the Titans is replaced by an African American coach from North Carolina. Tensions arise when players of different races are forced together on the same football team. Many of these tensions are eased during the two-week training camp in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. When players return to Alexandria the players find the city in turmoil due to the forced desegregation of the high school. Through facing a lot of objections and questions, the players and the coaches still choose to unify, depend on and trust each other. As the season progresses the team's success causes the community to accept the changes. After the Titans' perfect season, the team and the city are closer than ever. There are many interpersonal conflicts in the movie, such as the racial conflict between the black and the white, the conflict between Coach Herman Boone and Coach Bill Yoast, the conflict between Gerry Bertier and his girlfriend Emma and so on. Because of different cultural background, conflicts arise between...

This change affected the whole community, school as well as the students in the football team. We as organizational development consultants job was to oversee the change that happened in this community and to manage this change to help the people that are going through this change. Firstly it is important to know what is meant by organizational development. It is a planned process of developing an organization to be more effective in accomplishing its desired goals. Organisational development can also be defined as a theory and practice of planned, systematic change in the attitudes, beliefs, and values of the employees through creation and reinforcement of long-term training programs. Organisational development is action oriented. It starts with a careful organization-wide analysis of the current situation and of the future requirements, and employs techniques of behavioral sciences such as behavior modeling, sensitivity training, and transactional analysis.

Sports can in a flash be put in this classification when matters identified with isolation, race and ethnicity are interrelated. I have chosen the film "Remember the Titans" to examine the effects of the previously stated as they relate to sports all through this paper. In 2000, Remember the Titans was an American sports film focused upon fanciful African American football mentor Herman Boone who was depicted by super star Denzel Washington. This motion picture was not just one of the top rated and enthralling films of its year, however offered groups of onlookers a complete representation of mutual activities and leads in the lives of individuals like themselves. Using our text to break down and thoroughly describe the movie in regards to realistic conflict theory, cultural theory and racism all of which plays into the factor of sociology of sport. Prejudice is the amazing conviction that races have unmistakable attributes and inherited variables, and, likewise, certain races are better than others. The realistic conflict theory suggests that contentions between two distinct gatherings will emit as the gatherings contend over the same constrained assets...

On one hand he could throw the game and get inducted into the Hall of Fame, on the other he could do the right thing and coach the team to victory. In the end he chose to do the right thing. He dug in his heels and stood up for Coach Boone and the team. He got fed up with the way his boys were being treated on the field. He went to the official that was calling against the Titans and told him he didn’t care if he went down with him. If he didn’t call a fair game he would go to the papers. He went back to the bench and told his boys to in so many words destroy the other team’s offense. He then looked at Boone and told him to run up the score. He didn’t care that he lost the nomination into the Hall of Fame. He could look at his daughter and his team knowing that he had done the right thing. Were there any alternatives? Possibly. He could have gone to Boone beforehand and told him what was going on. He could have told them no from the get go. He could have went ahead and let the Titans lose.

...TITAN’S BRAND BUILDING AND BRAND REORGANISATION STRATEGY Marketing Management In our view the disassociation of the Sonata brand from the parent Titan and its further association with TATA was a well long term planned strategy, as the association of Sonata built in quite strong with Titan and Titan in Indian context is synonymous with Watches thus a strong association of Sonata with the watches segment developed.

...essential utility item. For the watch industry, time seems in its favour what with the liberalization of the Indian market coupled with the rising purchasing power of the young and consumerist Indians. Indian watches market was for long dominated by public sector organisations like Hindustan Machine Tools Ltd. (HMT) and Allwyn (also famous for its refrigerators once upon a time!), and has now left the pioneers far behind or nowhere in market by private sector enterprises like Titan, Sonata, Ajanta and Timex along with foreign entities jostling for display space in the smallest of shops selling these products. Before the establishment of HMT as the dominant player in the Indian markets initially, the country was solely dependent on imports to meet the internal demand. However, establishment of HMT as the leading player in the wrist watch segment in the 1960’s, changed the scenario. In post liberalization India, the market stood to witness intensive competition between foreign and Indian manufacturers like Timex, Titan, Movado, Longines, Rado, Rolex, Fréderique Constant, Mont Blanc, Swatch, and many others. Many watch makers have made significant inroads in the industry and others are in the process of establishing themselves, currently. Besides this, buyers are extremely choosy about the brand and type of wrist watches they wear. Being extremely brand conscious, their tastes have evolved over the years and have gone beyond the realms of durability to choose in terms of......

...Titan Industries Titan Industries is the organization that brought about a paradigm shift in the Indian watch market when it introduced its futuristic quartz technology, complemented by international styling. With India's two most recognized and loved brands Titan and Tanishq to its credit, Titan Industries is the fifth largest integrated watch manufacturer in the world. The success story began in 1984 with a joint venture between the Tata Group and the Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation. Presenting Titan quartz watches that sported an international look, Titan Industries transformed the Indian watch market. After Sonata, a value brand of functionally styled watches at affordable prices, Titan Industries reached out to the youth segment with Fastrack, its third brand, trendy and chic. The company has sold 135million watches world over and manufactures 13 million watches every year. With a license for premium fashion watches of global brands, Titan Industries repeated its pioneering act and brought international brands into Indian market. Tommy Hilfiger and FCUK as well as the Swiss made watch – Xylys owe their presence in Indian market to Titan Industries. Entering the largely fragmented Indian jewellery market with no known brands in 1995, Titan Industries launched Tanishq, India’s most trusted and fastest growing jewellery brand. Gold Plus, the later addition, focuses on the preferences of semi-urban and rural India. Completing the jewellery portfolio is Zoya...

...MARKETING ASSIGNMENT PERSONAL LEARNING PAPER- TITAN Submitted By: Priya Mariam Simon TITAN Introduction Titan is the market leader in the Indian watch industry. Titan had revolutionized the watch market with its emphasis on style and international quality. It had created strong brand equity in India and some overseas market. It has also established a strong presence in the area of branded gold jewellery. Titan with its top management team and the backing of the TATAs has achieved one of the leading marketing companies. Company History Titan was set up in July 1984, under the leadership of Xerxes Desai, with its corporate office in Bangalore. When it entered the market, HMT was the market leader. Titan went ahead with its plan to make the quartz watches. The company made only a handful ordinary looking quartz watches and had neglected styling as a whole. Titan believed that the Indian consumers desire to own a good looking watch had been totally ignored. Titan decided to grow the market by encouraging ownership of multiple watches thereby stimulating the purchase of replacement watches and targeting under penetrated segments like women and first time buyers. Titan looked at new business opportunities. Titan realized that its watches alone might not be able to price open the global market. The Company’s diversification into jewellery was a good gamble. Tanishq was branded and had been set up as an export-......
