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.

CEO ne kuch nhi socha hoa tha tabhi ye injam hoa esi situation pr. hum kya hall kr skte hn, mind me rkh kr k ese position bhi a skti hai tu tb kya hall hona chahiye k achank company bnd na ho logon k chale jane se.
Yes the question is Exactly confusing.. i'm still thinking in 2 angles. either I were a new CEO or the Patient one :P
So i'm submitting a Solution which fits for both.... that will surely confuse the Instructor & Tutor itself.. hahaha :D
not confusing. Statement clear with "If you were" simple in place of patient.
