1. What problems does Robin Hood have? What Issues need to be addressed? -Robin Hood’s biggest problem is the fast growing rate of his Merrymen. This is causing more problems such as a decline in resources and funding, a lax in recruitment and training making the Merrymen less disciplined, and also the Sheriff increased his staff to keep up. With the growing band and becoming more known, travelers are starting to take different routes to avoid the forest. There is also Robin’s personal crusade with the Sheriff and thoughts of killing him. Another issue is the baron’s proposition of amnesty for joining the conspiracy to free King Richard the Lionheart from jail. 2. Do Robin Hood and the Merrymen need a new mission? New objectives? A new strategy? -Yes, a new strategy would be to downsize his Merrymen and go back to how it was when they first started with more one on one training experience. Also, if they had an interview process to find the more skilled; they would have less man power but the quality would make up for it and also help with the decline in resources. Since the plans have shifted a bit from when they first started, Robin needs to keep moving with it and create new objectives. He hasn’t planned short term and long term goals. 3. What strategic options does Robin Hood have? Is continuing with the present strategy an option or is the present strategy obsolete? -Robin could expand his Merrymen outside Sherwood Forest to where the travelers have been using alternate routes. Robin could kill the Sheriff to satisfy his personal vendetta. The Merrymen could also start taxing to provide more resources but then they would be just like the Sheriff. The present strategy is obsolete and needs to be adjusted to the course that has been changing because travelers are becoming smarter and his growing team needs more resources. 4.Why not try to end
