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.
Robin Hood also faced another issue with his direct competition known as the evil Sheriff. The Sherriff was consistently attempting to put the Merrymen out of business and with his vast wealth and connections he was beginning to gain a foothold over the Merrymen. 1. Do Robin Hood and the Merrymen need a new mission? New objectives?
This has caused many problems for Robin Hood. Discipline was becoming harder to enforce because of the sheer size of the group. The group is also faced with lower revenue and increased costs. The organization was beginning to exceed the food capacity of the forest so supplies had to be obtained from outlying villages. Some of the other issues that Robin Hood is faced with are whether or not to impose a fixed transit tax, what to do about the growing strength of the Sheriff, and if he should accept the Barons offer to join in freeing King Richard.
Strategy: * Several barons would like to release King Richard, so form a alliance with Robin Hood (Merrymen). * Robin Hood spread his group to become larger and larger, even outside Sherwood Forest. * The main objective of Robin Hood is kill sheriff (Defensive). 4. Why not try to end the campaign by killing the Sheriff?
The weakness caused by the growth was that observance and caution were in decline and discipline became harder to enforce. Also, due to the increasing numbers of men, the food was becoming scarce and they were beginning to exhaust the bands financial reserves. Robin Hood was also trying to come up with a solution to the outright confiscation of goods but the lieutenants resisting the idea of a fixed transit tax. The sheriff was growing stronger because of his growing support with his political connections and Prince John. Opportunities arose with the invitation to join the conspiracy to help return the king for future amenity.
Strategy Statement:- The initial mission of the band, “Rob the rich and give to the poor” was no longer effective to the band. The new strategy and mission for Robin Hood should be to limit to the number of people being recruited into the band and meet the fund requirements for the band along with the old mission. Robin Hood should conspire with the barons to free King Richard. Vision:- To make sure that all the people rich or poor are treated equally and have enough food and money. In order to stay focused on their long term vision they have to remove Prince John from power by freeing King Richard from his imprisonment in Austria.

But the empire were very inconsiderate and silly as people were paying the taxes by growing and harvesting crops which they would sell to the markets in order to pay for the taxes. The markets then started to bring in less money as there were fewer products being sold to the markets. They then had to raise the taxes leaving more people in poverty, which also caused many deaths. This is just one reason for the collapse for the Empire. The second reason for the collapse of the army was Religion, Christianity that had a massive influence on a lot of the population of
‘Maycomb was an old town’ because everybody knew what was happening at the time, therefore gossip about Thomas Robinson would spread as fast as light. So, Lee’s aim was to change society which was discriminating people who were far away from being respectful beings and showing unequal society. Francis is Scout’s cousin who is rude and disrespectful by saying that Atticus is a ‘Nigger-lover’ which makes Scout to lose her patience-she ‘split her knuckle to the bone on his front teeth’. This action leads Scout to be seen as violent in front of Uncle Jack’s eyes. However, Uncle didn’t know the truth behind this brutal and aggressive accident where Scout, not Francis gets in trouble.
Indeed, the main problems are the sheriff, the organization of the Merrymen, and prince john. The Sheriff is undeniably one of the biggest threats for Robin and the Merrymen because of his determination to arrest them and bring an end to those who believe in robbing from the rich and give it to the poor. The Sheriff’s power also increase as the Merrymen does, he can be described as Robin Hood’s main competitor. The band of Merrymen is lead by Robin who assigns task to his fellowship “the lieutenants” to discipline, recruit, and teach whoever likes Robin’s system better than the current government. However, as the band of Merrymen grows larger, it is very difficult to organize it.
