The problems with that were with a bigger band the people grew less vigilance and discipline was harder to enforce. Food was getting shorter because the new recruits. Supplies had to be obtaining from the villages. Buying food became harder and harder because it was coming into the financial reserves. Robin Hood current mission was to rob the rich and give to the poor.
Each lieutenant is delegated an important organisational task which improves the group’s efficiency as Robin Hood cannot do everything alone. * Support of the people, support of the farmers and the townspeople, which are larger in numbers. * Deep sense of justice. Weaknesses: * Their biggest weakness is their growing number which creates many problems: * Gold shortage: less merchants enter the forest; * Food shortage: the forest is too small and the gold reserves are decreasing; * Loss of vigilance and discipline: as group grows larger “free-riders” may appear; * Loss of the group’s identity; Opportunities: * Join the barons’ plot to pay the ransom for the king’s return. * Killing the sheriff.
There are many reasons for the fall of Rome. The three main reasons are inflation, political corruption, and excessive military spending. There are many more scientific theories, but these three seem to be the most important. Towards the end of the empire, after Marcus Aurelius was emperor, the economy had difficulties with the increase of prices of everything. Since Rome was no longer conquering new lands, they weren't getting the extra money so they turned poor.
Strategic Management Robin Hood Case Analysis 1) What does the SWOT analysis reveal about the Merrymen`s situation? Situation analysis: The case is dealing with two characters Robin Hood and the Merrymen. They are doing the same business against the power of the Sheriff. The basic idea is they want to rob the rich and give it to the poor. The organization was a source of satisfaction for Robin, and has increased with associates to become a very powerful organization.
Case Study 1: Robin Hood 1) What strategic problems does Robin Hood have? Robin had several strategic problems which he had to worry about the campaign that was growing, the disposition of his forces (organizational communication/leadership), the sheriff’s recent moves and growing forces, and the options that confronted him. Also the dire consequences the sheriff was thinking of. One of the main concerns was that profits were diminishing as the group became bigger. Another one is that the group wasn’t the same culture when it first started out, sure it was all to fight against the sheriff, but they started picking up people that sound like they don’t really need to be a part of the group.
| 2. Does Robin Hood need to expand or change the mission and purpose of the organization? This will depend on the ultimate goal of Robin Hood. If the return of King Richard the Lionhearted is what the band pursuits, then changing their missions is necessary to join the Barons’ conspiracy in court intrigue. On the other hand, Robin can keep the band’s current objectives to help the poor, and put more pressure on the Sheriff and prince John to distract them from the scheme of the barons.
ROBIN HOOD CASE STUDY ANALYSIS STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT 11th February 2014 INTRODUCTION The case study Robin Hood reflects upon the issues and problems that Robin Hood is presently confronted with regarding the state of his band, the Merrymen, its position against the Sheriff, and possible alternatives to diffuse the growing tension and economic concerns attributed to the increasing number of his band. The Merrymen had been a strong and united group from the outset of its formation, but the growth in its membership had proven to be more problematic for Robin Hood than he initially anticipated. As the band grew larger, the men would socialize and play games between raids, therefore decreasing their vigilance and making it more difficult to enforce discipline among the group. Food supply in the forest also became insufficient to provide for the growing band, and thus they sought out supplies from outlying villages, or confiscated goods from travelers when food costs began to drain their financial resources. Robin started to consider a change in the Merrymen’s policy from the utter confiscation of goods to one of a fixed transit tax, but his group’s leaders were resistant to that idea, as they firmly held the band’s original motto: “Rob the rich and give to the poor,”—thinking it wrong to tax the farmers and townspeople because they are the band’s greatest allies, and fearing that this would make them turn against the Merrymen.
Both for Robin Hood who is in charge for making important decisions and his Lieutenants in charge of taking care of the band, Miller’s Son. The fame of the Merrymen was so high that new recruits were constantly pouring in. Unfortunately the great number of allies was beginning to exceed the food capacity of the forest. Third, the main source of revenue was an important concern for the band. While the band was getting larger their income stream was in constant decline.
Robin Hood Case Study James H Middleton III Wilmington University I will be covering a case study on Robin Hood. It includes our competitive forces, key success factors, “SWOT” analysis and recommendations for Robin Hood and his band of merry men. Referring back to chapter four, I will present a swot analysis that gives you full detail on this case. Throughout this study, you will find several problems they face as a whole and some solutions for these issues. Key Factors * The Merry men’s expertise in their robbing techniques is a key success factor for the band.
Therefore the Mayans had more people than food and housing. Conflict between the nobility and ordinary people is another factor of the decline of Classic Mayan Civilization. Since people no longer respected the nobility their functions in society were questioned thus creating breakdown in social order. The nobility fought amongst themselves to secure a greater part of the tributes and the peasantry began to reject the great demands for food production while resources were diminishing. 2.
