Abstract

This supplement is to accompany the case (398-052-1). The abstract is as follows: The Kappavita case study concerns an international, joint venture, company start-up experience based on the Italian life insurance market. The focus of the case is on a number of general management issues that arise during the development of the first 5 years of the company. Many of the issues reflect the cultural differences between the partners and there is a real opportunity to learn how to manage these differences through the use of a ''mock'' board meeting. This supplement contains material needed to hold the board meeting. This provides an interactive learning experience for the whole group. The case may also be used in the more traditional way using the suggested questions to test the understanding of the students on the issues involved. There are missing gaps of information where the student would be expected to draw on his/her own experience.
