Abstract

This is the first of a three-case series (398-105-1 to 398-107-1). This first case is written around Huta Tadeusa Sendzimira (HTA), a large steel mill in Poland. It describes the development and progress of the mill existing in a planned economy which was gradually declining up to the late 80s when the economy was in a state of crisis, and Solidarity was elected as the new government. Users of this case are provided with an opportunity to examine life under a communist regime and the impact of a planned economy on a state owned enterprise. The case provides insights into the ideals and value systems of the time and provides the reader with a starting point for the following parts of the case. An understanding of the historical position being an essential prerequisite to an understanding of the current position. It also provides a point of reflection about value systems and motivations for change.
