I’m working on a management case study and need support to help me understand better.

Synopsis
CEO Tony Bussard apparently wanted to relinquish none of the power when he agreed with board members of Alvon Biometrics to maintain control over the financial and administrative side of the company while naming a COO to oversee day-to-day operations. Juan Carlos De la Vega was hired as COO for the company. De la Vega came to Alvon from a smaller rival company and was initially excited about his new position and the future of Alvon. But De la Vega’s exciting new position came with its own set of frustrations as he tried to plunge into the rapidly changing technology while simultaneously fitting into the organization and tip-toeing around Tony Bussard’s ego. One year into the job, De la Vega was still wondering what  was expected of him. De la Vega’s earnest efforts to get guidance about his responsibilities seemed to be brushed aside by the CEO.

The confusion about De la Vega’s role also filtered down the ranks. Employees, expecting initiative from De la Vega, remained uncertain about his range of responsibilities. Even one year later, employees were reluctant to take a chance on angering Bussard by shifting their attention and allegiance to De la Vega. De la Vega knew it was time for clarity.

Questions:
1. If you were De la Vega, what would you do at this point? Do you think De la Vega has waited too long to make a substantial change in his relationship with Bussard? Why?
2. How would you characterize De la Vega’s style as a follower? What tactics might help improve his relationship with Bussard? Explain.
3. If you were in De la Vega’s position, what would you have done from the beginning? Be specific about your actions and timing.

“What Should I Say?”
Synopsis
The sudden heart attack of his predecessor, Bill Andrews, propelled Russell Hart into a temporary top management assignment for Kresk International in the company’s new Middle East Division in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. After six months, Russell went to Dallas to report at the semiannual board meeting. The board would determine if he or Bill Andrews would have the permanent assignment at the end of the year. Russell enjoyed the company’s top assignment and hoped to impress management at the meeting so that he would be named director of the Middle East Division. In Dallas, Russell has an impromptu chat with his assistant Christopher Dunn where he describes in depth the atrocious behavior of a colleague, Youssef Said. Russell has observed how Said’s behavior has made a few employees resign. He also mentions how Said loves to humiliate employees and how his total disregard for the opinion of others appalls Russell. Russell adds that Said has an inner circle or “family” whom he favors. He always seems to work deals and bend rules. Russell feels Youssef Said’s methods may not be in the best interest of the company. He wants the board to notice this and asks Christopher for advice because the board, at this point of time, seems to be impressed by Youssef Said.

Questions:
1. What do you think Russell Hart should include in his report about Youssef Said? Why? What would you do in his position?
2. What amount or kind of courage will be required for Hart to disclose everything honestly? How would you advise Hart to acquire that courage?

3. At which stage of Kohlberg’s moral development scale would you place Youssef Said, Russell Hart, and Bill Andrews? Why?
