Learning Goal: I’m working on a business discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Read the “Turning Around Cote Construction Company” found at the end of Chapter 9 and follow these steps before answering the case study questions. In order to answer the case study questions you will apply the Change Path Model from Chapter 9 to the Cote Construction Company case.
A case study is a puzzle to be solved, so before reading and answering the specific questions, develop your proposed solution by following these five steps:
Read the case study to identify the key issues and underlying issues. These issues are the principles and concepts of the course module, which apply to the situation described in the case study.
Record the facts from the case study which are relevant to the principles and concepts of the module. The case may have extraneous information not relevant to the current module. Your ability to differentiate between relevant and irrelevant information is an important aspect of case analysis, as it will inform the focus of your answers.
Describe in some detail the actions that would address or correct the situation.
Complete this initial analysis and then read the discussion questions. Typically, you will already have the answers to the questions but with a broader consideration. At this point, you can add the details and/or analytical tools required to solve the case.
Case Study Questions:
What problems should he tackle first? Which were operational and which were organizational? What timeline should he establish?
How should he consider the people in the company? What should he ask them? How should he approach them to solicit their ideas for the turnaround?
How should he deal with Felix? Should he allow him to continue as head of Equipment and Operations? Should he sideline Felix and formally reduce his authority at Cote Construction? Would it, in fact, be a relief to employees to know that Felix no longer played a role in the company?
