Abstract

For teaching purposes, this is the case-only version of the HBR case study.Liana, a product developer-turned-entrepreneur, is invited back to her old company to take over her former boss's job. She's excited about the prospect of trying out some new ideas there, and the CEO says he's eager to see what she can do, but Liana wonders how receptive to change he and the rest of the executive committee will really be when projects are on the line-and whether her reputation as someone who'd previously quit will harm her ability to lead her old team.
