Abstract

This is the second of a three-case series (396-075-1, 396-076-1 and 399-157-1). The case takes place five years after the original Black Water Rafting case (396-075-1) and can be used independently or as a follow-up. The company has continued to grow and is now undergoing a large capital expansion. A number of issues related to competition and resource management have arisen, which could have a significant impact on the company''s future operations. This case illustrates the potential opportunities and threats associated with operating a business as a relatively small part of a larger system, and explores different options for dealing with competitors.
