Lalaland: A case on electoral law LAW010283-U-ENG-HTM
Lalaland is an independent republic, with a parliamentary system of government. Since its beginning, Lalaland’s economy was based on agriculture and shipping, but in 1992, the government proposed a shift of focus to electronic products and services based on the Internet. Lalaland enjoyed economic growth and prosperity for many years. However, during the dot-com bubble, the economy suffered a severe recession.
To face the economic crisis, a series of austerity measures were adopted by the government with the approval of Parliament. These measures led to social unrest and massive public and violent demonstrations throughout the country. Furthermore, conspiracy theories on political corruption started circulating through different social media platforms. Amid this social unrest, elections for a new Parliament took place and claims of electoral fraud were raised. This tension has led to the collapse of the political system and it seems that the only remedy to the political crisis is the implementation of a reform to the constitution.
However, some issues such as the choice of the electoral system, the voting right of expatriates, the use of technology for accuracy and safety of electoral results and the regulation of fake news are still unresolved.

The case describes the history of a SME that initially was operating only in Spain and had expanded providing service throughout the world. The case also allows us to understand which reasons were decisive kick-start the internationalization of the company. Two elements appear to explain the success of ACE. First, the very intensive use of computer tools and the internet from its origins and second, hiring of on-demand staff. These elements allowed a great reduction of costs and offered a wide variety of consulting services with a Lean Company structure.
Even so, ACE, the company that became a worldwide reference in the provision of technical assistance services that works in more than 80 countries in all continents, has strategic dilemmas for the future; in particular, the case questions the models of growth and expansion in new markets.Academic Area:Entrepreneurship
