Abstract

Set in a German automotive company, this case traces the dynamics of a consulting project team doing a high profile strategic project as part of a company-specific international management program. With weeks to go, the team is in shambles, the project presentation a disaster and the team dynamics terrible. A decision about what to do with this team must be made immediately by the project director. This case focuses on making a tough management call with serious implications and also focuses on how to intervene constructively in a cross-functional, international team. This case is the first part of a 2-part case: Cases A & B (UVA-OB-0705, UVA-OB-0706).
