Case Study

I’m studying for my Business class and need an explanation.

Read the boxed in mini-case When Bosses Rush In on page #30.

Consider Helen Demarco’s situation and response to the “Osborne Plan” publicized by Paul Osborne through the lenses of the Four Frames – Political, Symbolic, Human Resources and Structural. Answer this question:

  • How do the elements of the situation / response fit into each frame?

Provide comment on some of the following questions:

  • Was Helen Demarco a good manager?
  • What grade did she deserve for her handling of the Osborne plan?
  • What do people think about her responses?
  • Her choices?
  • Her options?
  • The power of her beliefs and theories of the situation?

Be sure your answer is supported by concepts and references from relevant materials.
