  1. In Search of Purpose: Employee Engagement through Co … CO1-277-I

    The case centers on Southlake Financial, a stylized company based on financial services in Canada. The case opens with a call to action from the company CEO, pledging the business will move toward a greater organization-wide focus on purpose (“purpose” meaning embedding more social and environmental intentionality in all aspects of the business). Traditionally, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Human Resources were managed separately at the company; however, the CEO’s announcement raises the question of whether greater integration of these functions will be needed. Specifically, the case examines how employee engagement can contribute to CSR objectives, while also questioning whether CSR initiatives have a positive and demonstrable benefit on employee engagement.

  3. Laura Carpenter CO1-248-I

    Laura felt depressed and confused. The idea of entering the competitive world of an associate in Investment Advisory really didn’t appeal to her. She felt she had proven her ability and didn’t want to go through the initial stages of having to make a big impression again. Besides, David was her mentor, wasn’t he? Moreover, from all she had read about women in business, wasn’t the mentor system supposed to be an essential ingredient in helping women move to the top? Was she looking a gift horse in the mouth and just being a spoiled brat? After all, without David’s guidance and support, she might be still typing somewhere.

    This case discusses Laura Carpenter's situation, which involves her six years of experience in an investment company and a recently acquired MBA degree. Her current role has setbacks and advantages, but when she is offered a new role in another department of the company, with a deadline for her decision, she needs to make up her mind.

  8. MB&F, The management of creativity DE1-219-I

    The case describes the foundation and development of Maximilian Busser and Friends (MB&F) a company that was established in Geneva with limited resources and was dedicated to manufacturing Horological Machines from its inception. One of the principal aims of the company was to produce the high-end watches that would be masterpieces, with limited edition.

    MB&F is an example that illustrates how relevant it is to define a clear vision and idea of the product and the market and how to enter a closed and complex industry with limited resources. However, taking this creative approach in a traditional market was full of challenges.

    Despite of these problems and challenges the company achieved a position as a player in the market. The case describes different reasons for that success, highlighting manufacturing, supply and distribution. Especially, the case remarks how the creativity approach best describes MB&F.

    The case introduces a fundamental question for the company, particularly: if this success is sustainable or if MB&F represents a trendy product that will soon fade away.
