¿Merece la pena que E.ON gaste tanta energía en su l … (A) DE1-155
The two-part “Battle for Endesa” case study exposes students to one of the fascinating takeover battles in Europe that had. Over an 18-month period, four different European companies (Gas Natural, E.ON, Acciona, and Enel) from three different countries (Spain, Germany, and Italy) made hostile bids for Endesa, Spain’s leading electricity utility. From the first day to the last, the takeover battle was heavily politicized with multiple regulatory agencies, ministries, European governments, and EU institutions weighing in at different times. The episode also unfolded prominently in the public with journalists in different countries and from different vantage points tracking events. Besides management issues related to corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, competition policy, utility regulation, and public relations, the case touches on issues of sovereignty, national pride, regional cleavages, cultural sentiments, separatism and the debate over market-oriented reforms and cross-border economic integration in Europe.
Since the case has multiple intriguing angles, it lends itself to use in different programs and classroom settings. It was initially developed for use in the Business, Government & Society course in the full-time MBA program at IE Business School and has become a staple of the course. However, the case could equally be used in a course on general management, strategic management, or stakeholder management, or any course dealing with energy, regulated industries, mergers and acquisition, industrial policy, or doing business in Europe.Academic Area:Strategy
¿Cómo se negocia en España? NG1-107
This case presents four interviews about the negotiation culture in Spain, conducted with Chinese, French, Cuban and Japanese people who have a broad experience in Spain. They describe and interpret the predominant negotiation culture in Spain from the particular viewpoint of their own culture, and in the different spheres of their business: international commerce, construction industry, technology and the diplomatic world.
The diversity of perspectives and experiences pose a challenge in summarizing the negotiation culture in Spain, customs, attitudes, beliefs and most common behaviors that are found when searching for solutions to solve a dispute in this country.
And so, in short, the case does not only address the question of how negotiations are done in Spain but also, for someone who comes to Spain to negotiate, it provides inputs for a discussion on: How should you negotiate with Spaniards?Academic Area:Others | Negotiation
La economía estadounidense: caso de estudio EC1-108
Beyond a doubt, the United States raises stronger passions and more defined opinions than any country in the world. Whether it is because of its economic success, its role as a military superpower, its predominant position in world events, its impact on world cultures through the entertainment industry, or for other reasons, nearly everyone appears to have an opinion regarding the U.S. And these opinions are often poorly informed.
This case attempts to fill the gap in information on the U.S. by giving a quick historical introduction and a broad modern-day approximation to the world’s largest economy. It addresses many of the stereotypes popularly associated with the U.S. and provides data to critically evaluate these stereotypes. The discussion will inevitably lead to the rejection of many popular stereotypes, both popular and negative, and to a deeper understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the world’s economic giant and business leader.Academic Area:Economic Environment & Public Affairs
