Description for case is given below :
For many years, Towers Watson (TW) has conducted its own research into alternative approaches to market cap investing. Philip Tindall senior investment consultant with TW was impressed by a recent presentation by the CIO of Research Affiliates (RA) about an innovative investing concept called the “Fundamental Index methodology.” He thinks it might be an important innovation in applying nonmarket cap approaches, but he has some concerns about the approach and whether or not it would be appropriate for TW clients. Clients depended on TW to keep them on the cutting edge of institutional investing, but recommending an untried investment strategy and deviating from status quo investment practice could either generate outperformance relative to their investment consulting competitors, thereby attracting new clients, or it could result in underperformance and defection of their clients to those competitors.

Description for case is given below :
A polymer chemist initiated a lawsuit against a national research institute for having failed to pursue a patent on his behalf, while he was employed as a post-doctoral research fellow. The chemist must now decide whether to accept a pre-judgment cash settlement of less than one sixth what his lawyer claims he is entitled to. Among the questions raised in this case are: Should the research institute have pursued a patent for an invention it did not own? In letting the institute file the patent application on his behalf, did the chemist not tacitly agree to assign his invention to the institute? The case outlines the importance of human resource policies stipulating the ownership of inventions made by scientists employed by an agency or others working onsite. It also shows how problems of assignment of intellectual property rights, if not resolved, can lead to failed technology transfer. The case also provides a detailed look at how a scientist would report an invention to its technology transfer office in order that a patent might be applied for.

Description for case is given below :
The world had changed as a result of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Canada was engaged in the Afghanistan War, and the first casualties were being felt. It was November 28, 2005, as Rene LaRose, the director general of Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Toronto, sat in his office preparing for an all-staff briefing the following day. He knew that for his research institute to remain relevant and be a major contributor to the emerging needs of the Canadian Forces and national security in this rapidly changing landscape, a major transformation of his centre was required. The Canadian Forces was undergoing its own metamorphosis under its new Chief of Defence Staff, General Rick Hillier, and DRDC Toronto needed to be in synch with this development. LaRose had spent several years trying to convey the message that profound changes at DRDC Toronto were needed – changes that were as much cultural as they were structural. The sense of urgency was now acute with Canada at war, and DRDC Toronto was poised to embark on a major organizational alignment program.

Mike Lazaridis, co-CEO of Research in Motion (RIM), faced a situation of truly disastrous proportion. Earlier that week, service outages started occurring on RIM’s popular BlackBerry smartphone devices, affecting over 30 million BlackBerry users globally. For a total of three days, RIM engineers worked around the clock to fix the widespread technical problems. However, with the company providing only brief comments to the public, many consumers and industry officials became increasingly frustrated. With the worldwide release of the new Apple iPhone 4S just days away, Lazaridis was presented with the additional challenge of how and if RIM should respond publically to help restore consumer and market confidence.

On June 30, 2011, Research in Motion (RIM) co-CEOs, Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis, unexpectedly found themselves facing serious public scrutiny, not from competitors, market analysts or consumers, but from one of their own senior executives. In an attempt to have their voice heard, an anonymous senior level RIM employee addressed an open letter to both Balsillie and Lazaridis, however the letter was sent to the online technology news provider Boy Genius Report (BGR). Upon BGR verifying the identity of the source RIM employee, the full contents of the letter were featured in an online BGR article, which quickly spread into mainstream media. The contents of the detailed open letter, provided various candid criticism of RIM leadership, product development and employee culture. In addition, the employee also offered personal insight and outlined specific actions necessary for RIM to improve and expressed their desire to see the company regain its once dominant position as an industry leader. In a year during which RIM already faced pressures from a dwindling market share, failed product attempts and a sinking stock price, Balsillie and Lazaridis needed to figure out how to respond to the claims of the letter publically, but more importantly how to communicate to RIM employees internally.

Case Solution for Research in Motion: Managing Explosive Growth

Case Name :      Research in Motion: Managing Explosive Growth

Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
Research in Motion (RIM) is a high technology firm that is experiencing explosive sales growth. David Yach, chief technology officer for software at RIM, has received notice of an impending meeting with the co-chief executive officer regarding his research and development (R&D) expenditures. Although RIM, makers of the very popular BlackBerry, spent almost $360 million in R&D in 2007, this number was low compared to its largest competitors, both in absolute numbers and as a percentage of sales (e.g. Nokia spent $8.2 billion on R&D). This is problematic as it foreshadows the question of whether or not RIM is well positioned to continue to meet expectations, deliver award-winning products and services and maintain its lead in the smartphone market. Furthermore, in the very dynamic mobile telecommunications industry, investment analysts often look to a firm’s commitment to R&D as a signal that product sales growth will be sustainable. Just to maintain the status quo, Yach will have to hire 1,400 software engineers in 2008 and is considering a number of alternative paths to managing the expansion. The options include: (1) doing what they are doing now, only more of it, (2) building on their existing and satellite R&D locations, (3) growing through acquisition or (4) going global.
