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.

Good luck!

ye bht asan question pocha gya hai. 

If you were the CEO of the Company, what could you have done to prevent this situation? 

un ka matlb hai agr ap company k CEO hote tu esa phle se kya intzam krte k ye situation jb ati tu company bnd na hoti. company bnd hoi kun k koi intzam nhi tha pahle se is masle ka. or achank death or health crises ki wjh se company bnd ho gai. tu hmen as a CEO is situation se bachne k liye kya intzam krne hn k esa masla ho bhi jaye achank tu company bnd na ho prevention phle se ho mojod is masle k liye.

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.
