Read the case study located on page 361 of the section titled Case Studies in your textbook and prepare a 5- to 6-page report in a Microsoft Word document, based on the following situation:

The CEO, Atul Jain, has made some very radical decisions recently that he believes will help to move TEOCO forward in ways that were previously unavailable to the company. He has asked you to serve as a consultant over the next 12-24 months as TEOCO navigates working with their new investor group, TA, and as they seek to incorporate the new acquisition, TTI, into their corporate culture.

To familiarize yourself with the client; your first task is to prepare a background report which analyzes TEOCO’s business environment and strategy. Your report should include the following:

  • • Analyse and discuss the external forces and industry conditions that have impacted TEOCO’s performance over the years?
  • • Analyze and discuss how the internal organization and culture at TEOCO influence its performance?
  • • Discuss how TEOCO has strategically responded to its competitive environment and internal capabilities?

What strengths and weaknesses do you perceive Jain’s management style lends to TEOCO’s overall effectiveness?

What issues do you expect to arise given TA’s recent investment in TEOCO? What recommendations do you have to assist with these issues?What issues do you expect to occur while incorporating TTI into the TEOCO culture? What recommendations do you have to assist with these issues?What challenges to you foresee in maintaining TEOCO’s strong corporate culture given the need for continued organizational change?In your report, you should be able to demonstrate an insightful look at TEOCO’s situation, make recommendations for incorporating TA’s requirements into TEOCO’s unique management style, and recommendations for incorporating the employee’s of TTI into TEOCO’s organizational culture.
