Abstract

This case is the outcome of a joint case research, writing effort by teams of faculty members at all four universities underwritten by the United States Agency for International Development and led by Iowa State University. The case describes the situation at a typical agricultural co-operative in central Bohemia in the Czech Republic in early 1993 - a time when the Czech Republic was in the midst of transforming itself from a socialistic centrally planned to a capitalistic free market economy. The general manager of the Co-operative must prepare a strategic plan to return the Co-operative to profitability. After looking over information gathered concerning the Co-operative''s operations, the manager must decide what he is to do at the next day''s meeting with his senior managers. This case goes with the companion Country/Industry Note "Agribusiness in the Czech and Slovak Republics" (395-018-5). There is also a Czech translation of this case (CZ395-021-1) and teaching note (CZ395-021-8) available.
