Human Resource Management(MGT501) Spring 2014 Assignment No. 01 Due Date: May 25, 2014 Marks: 10

Human Resource Management(MGT501)     Spring 2014 Assignment No. 01 Due Date: May 25, 2014           Marks: 10     

A  computer  manufacturer  company  had  highly  talented  and  dedicated  employees.  The company’s CEO, Mr. Kashif, took the organization to new heights and never before had the  company experienced such profits. Its different innovative computer parts were smashing  hits  and  even more  popular than  before. With the  exception  of some  initial  difficulties  of this  company and its battle in the public forum over its proposed new computer parts in  different  countries of the world, this company could do no wrong.    Although CEO is credited with much of company’s success, in fact he did not do it alone.     He had a team of executives who worked together to bring about the prosperity. Included in his  team  were the President, Ms. Rukhsar and Chief Product Officer (CPO), Mr. Shahid.    It all began to unravel in May 2010. President, on a well‐deserved vacation in Dubai, was killed  in a helicopter crash. Then, in August 2010, CEO underwent emergency cardiac bypass  surgery.  Questions began to arise about who would be in charge if CEO could not continue because of  failing  health.  Who  would  succeed  him?  That  proved  to  be  difficult  question  for  the  organization. President, the obvious choice, was suddenly gone. CPO regarded as one of  “the  most talented  executives  and  CEO’s  Protégé”  wanted the  job  and  appeared to  be  leading  candidate. There were also others who were possibilities but they did not appear to have the  inside track that President or CPO had.    Given stockholders’ and investors’ concerns, company had to take some immediate action  and  named  its successor to  CEO.  But to the surprise  of many,  CPO  was  not  named.CEO and company’s board of directors felt that he just was not ‘right’ for the position. Upset about being  passed over, CPO resigned. As a result, the team that built a strong company in the past  few  years has all but and disappeared.    

Question:    If you were the CEO of the Company, what could you have done to prevent this situation?  Give two suggestions along with rationale.

Plz... Yar koi Discuss tu kero.....

Today Last Day 25th May....

in my point of view that the company ceo  should promote the cpo for said position.for this purpose the company should provide the necessary training to the cpo for this position,

this is due to that the cpo is already known about every thing and take part in the company matter .and he already part of the company so he can work for the betterment of the company.

for the other position the company should advertise and then recuite the eligible person for that position

As a CEO i would have offered the CPO a better position or atleast gave him credit for what he has done in the past & would ask the CPO to join with me and create a team with the help of his guidance and training to help our organization to build-up again rather than thinking about personal goals and achievements. 

Though it is very unprofessional of him ( CPO ) to resign at this time when the company needs him the most as he is experienced and has been a part of the previous successful team. Yet the new CEO and the company's board of directors should have acknowledged CPO's contributions to motivate him to stay in the organization. 

how can i Rationale my suggestion? 


In times of crisis company should join hands and build-up a team to face all the circumstances together and work harder for the betterment of the organization.

Yes I also think that advertisement should made for said position.
