Abstract

The case opens with a description of an exchange student from the Netherlands, Tillie, who was taking a semester at a University in Cork, Ireland. Tillie was travelling by train to Dublin to meet with her mother and sister. Tillie, a management student, makes the decision to converse with fellow train passengers, Frank and Helen on the issue of organisation design. The case presents a unique opportunity for Tillie - and case readers - to get a better understanding of how two religious organizations are designed. The case provides a rich narrative account of design issues from a fictitious Catholic Deacon (Frank) and a Clerk of the Religious Society of Friends (Helen).
