Description for case is given below :
CEO Jim Billings wants to attract energetic, entrepreneurial talent to Stone Finch, Inc., which comprises an older division that fabricates products like piping and tanks for water and wastewater processing plants, and a much newer division that develops biochemical solutions associated with water purification. To accelerate the company’s growth, Billings sets up subsidiaries to create cutting-edge technologies that can be brought to market by the biochemical solutions division. After a few years the subsidiaries have indeed produced innovative products and driven growth; however, problems are surfacing. Much of the investment in the subsidiaries has come from the old manufacturing-based “cash cow” division, which is now suffering from turnover, loss of morale, and loss of competitive position. Moreover, the solutions division — which has absorbed numerous employees who became wealthy by developing successful subsidiaries — is plagued by increasing polarization between the “haves” and the “have-nots.”

Description for case is given below :
Meli Marine, a container shipping company, is facing an important strategic decision after an interesting acquisition opportunity presents itself. Founded in 1974 by the Chang Family, the Singapore-based company has carved out a niche in the intra-Asia transport market. After years of success, eroding business conditions caused a financial crisis and a new CEO, David Tian, was brought in. Tian created a successful strategic change effort that resulted in a more stable but slower-growth company. More than ten years later, Meli Marine has a rare and affordable opportunity to acquire the larger shipping vessels it needs to move into a global market. Tian and his board must decide to whether to expand the franchise into Asian-North American shipping lanes, as key competitors have done, or continue with its current conservative business model.

Description for case is given below :
Shelby Givens, a new MBA, is the general manager of Westlake Lanes, a near-bankrupt bowling alley that her grandfather founded decades earlier. Givens has been given one year to turn a profit; if the goal is not met Westlake will close. During the first few days on the job, Givens learns that the business is in worse shape financially than she – or the board – thought. She also finds that Westlake’s employees exhibit minimal productivity. Givens tackles these two issues, creatively uncovering ways to reduce costs while building morale. After nine months, the business has its first profitable month in over two years. Yet Givens is worried it is too little, too late and begins to sketch a bolder long-term strategy based on pursuing one of two alternative new markets. Students are invited to consider whether the board should accept her potentially transformative proposal, maintain existing operations, or liquidate to pay off pressing loan responsibilities. The case includes a quantitative assignment for students.

Shelby Givens, a recent business school graduate, returned home to Raleigh, North Carolina to help rescue her family’s ailing and outdated bowling alley, Westlake Lanes. Although she cut costs and addressed inefficiencies, moving the business from near-bankruptcy to profitability in nine months, market conditions threatened the long-term viability of the business. Givens then sold her family on a new, more youth-oriented concept, an urban lounge called Sugar Bowl that could generate sizable revenues from the food and beverage businesses already embedded in Westlake Lanes. The case follows Givens as she builds Sugar Bowl into a turnaround story through shrewd decision-making in finance, operations, and marketing while contending constantly with challenging surprises and disappointments. The case also captures Givens’s reflections on how the entrepreneurial drive that has motivated her. Sugar Bowl may be taught alone or after “Westlake Lanes” (4431), which follows Givens through the initial turnaround process.
