Abstract

This is the second of a three-case series (ESMT-306-0076-1 to ESMT-306-0078-1). This case illustrates key concepts and lessons about crisis management in the context of the energy sector in Sweden but also relates to broader general management and leadership topics. It portrays the events and actions following a massive hurricane (called ''Gudrun'') which devastated southern Sweden in January 2005, causing a major power outage among 258,000 of Sydkraft''s customers. The (B) case describes a number of measures that the company took as part of ''Operation Gudrun'' in the aftermath of the severe hurricane.
