MBA’ Study Visit in Company MGJ

One of the final modules in MBA is “Applying Project and Portfolio Management Methodologies for Business Strategy Execution”. During this module, MBA students visit various organisations to experience their culture and learn about the challenges in implementing strategies and projects.

On October 13, MBA cohort 14 visited the family sawmill – MGJ. The class was conducted by Małgorzata Wejer, Ph.D. – company co-owner. In Poland, as a sawmill, the company is a leader in the production of untrimmed hardwood lumber. The company approaches the production of lumber with the utmost care, from sourcing the raw material, through sawing to the drying process.

We had the opportunity to talk about the strategic and operational challenges facing the family-owned wood business. We discussed the importance of a good strategy for the organisation’s development and the role of VRIO and SWOT analysis. We have found confirmation the relationships you establish with business partners and the people you hire to work with you are the most significant values determining such a company’s success.

We want to thank Małgorzata Wejer for the opportunity to visit the company, for the possibility to participate in the case study based on MGJ’s operations and to learn about the secrets of wood production. Thank you also for the opportunity to distinguish the type of boards and wood tangibly.

At the end of the study visit, a group of MBA students visited the nearby Piaśnica Forests. In the rain and sad silence, we reflected on mutual respect, appreciation of diversity and the tragedy of every war.

No more war.
