This is an individual assignment requiring no new group or class discussion. Please refer to the case: “Hancock Products, Inc.” Answer the three questions below. I encourage you to focus on our class lectures, readings, videos and class discussion to answer these questions. In addition to in-depth responses to the questions, you should reach further to show that you can apply, interpret, and synthesize the course’s topics as they relate to the case.
Answer the three questions below.
Q1. How should Bill Phillips lead and manage the change at Hancock? Discuss a set of actions that need to be taken to resolve the problems at Hancock. Use examples and insights from readings and class discussion forums as part of your answer.
Q2. Consider in more depth the readings and class discussion forums on leadership: How are insights from various authors and class discussion forums useful for understanding the role of leadership in this situation?
Q3. Suppose this event occurred in another country or geographical area, such as Germany, Japan, India, China (you choose a particular country); would Bill Phillip’s CFO career get derailed? Why or why not? What is your definition of derailment? Your submission will be evaluated for the following properties:
Convincing case solution with examples and evidence, (including personal applications and examples from the class).
Wide ranging integration of course concepts and readings to provide insights into the context or conditions that explain the specific case issues. Should reference readings and class.
New insights or ways of understanding issues that you see in our readings and group and class discussion that can be applied to this case. This could include new personal insights into how the material applies to you or your critical evaluation of it. Use discussion on specific topic areas to lend understanding to this case and create new meaning.
Final document that exhibits professional formatting and writing, as noted in the Business Writing Guidelines.
