  1. Discover-Identify the problem: What were two of the three main issues described in the case that were problematic? 
  2. Investigate-Gather information to define the problem: What were the cultural challenges posed by Disney’s expansion into France? 
  3. Brainstorm-Produce Alternatives: In your opinion, how could Disney have resolved these issues? 
  4. Implement-Put the best solution into effect: Of your alternatives, which one do you think would work out best? Why? 
  5. Review-Assess the effects of the solution: Based on Disney’s experience, what are the lessons the company should have learned about how to deal with cultural issues when expanding? Describe each.
