Robin Hood

...Everyone remembers the Robin Hood Character? If you don’t, he was a person that stole money from the rich and gave it to the poor. Texas law has come up with a plan do to the same thing involving rich and poor school districts. This plan is called Robin Hood named after this fictional character. The law is designed to tax money from the richer school districts and give it to the poorer districts. There is a lot of controversy over this law, but in reality Robin Hood is a very good thing. One of the most important goals of this law is to give kids equal opportunities. Many children are born into poor families that live in a poorer neighborhood, which isn’t their fault and they can do nothing to help it. The Robin Hood plan gives these children to get the exact same quality education as a more privileged child living in a richer district. With the extra money the poorer districts schools are able to buy new books, computers, and other materials, so that every school is kept up to date. Another good general idea is that this plan will create a more educated public in those poorer cities. With the future of that city getting a strong education, the future public in general will be brighter. Robin Hood will improve the poor cities and help their economy in the long run. Using the Robin Hood will also result in less crime. This plan will keep children in the classroom and off the streets. It will also give them the education to go get a job out of school, instead of turning to......

Robin Hood

...Issues 1. Robin Hood faces a problem about the developing of Merrymen’s band. It seems that Robin Hood couldn’t well-managed the rising group because he is lack of familiarity with new members. 2. Robin Hood is careless for recruiting people. It’s dangerous for Merrymen’s band if some spies are recruited in the group. 3. Supplies for the troop are another problem of rising band. New troops need more foods, camping size and money. 4. The Sheriff troops are getting stronger and better organized. 5. The Merrymen troops are lack of discipline; they spend more time on talking and playing games besides raiding. Recommendations 1. Robin Hood should limit the recruiting of new members. He should focus on quality of the troop, not the quantity. 2. Robin Hood should choose his trusted sub-leaders to help him manage the Merrymen well. He cannot train all Merrymen members by himself. 3. Besides raiding, the Merrymen troops need to enforce in discipline. They should get their leisure time to find foods and improve their basic needs. 4. Robin Hood should join in with the barons to free King Richard in order to seek future amnesty. Rationale 1. The fast developing of Merrymen brings many troubles to Robin Hood. He doesn’t expect to manage many people now. 2. As the group is growing steady, foods and basic needs are another problem for Robin Hood due to lack of supply. 3. As the situation changes very fast, Robin Hood doesn’t change his management style in......

Robin Hood

...Robin Hood’s initial gripe was rooted in a personal conflict he had experienced with the Sherriff and his administration. He wanted revenge. Realizing the numbers were not on his side he mustered his leadership skills and banded together a group of men. Their strategy was to rob the rich and give to the poor. He was the leader and he had five lieutenants to help him lead. The fame of the band led to sharp increase in volunteers to the cause. Admittance measures were lax and there became were too many people to train and feed. Just like any small company that expands far too quickly-they were in danger of overexerting their resources. The bargaining power of suppliers was very high because Robin Hood and his men were thieves and by associating with them they themselves could get in trouble as well. Even though they were gaining in the numbers they were getting weaker and were more vulnerable to threats of attacks by their competitive rivals the Sheriff and Prince John. Robin suggested taxing the men but his lieutenants pointed out that the low threat from buyers was maintained by the fact that they were not taxed. I recommend that they start to screen who they admit into the group. The group has very obvious needs like for farmers and hunters who can supply food for them. At this time they should recruit people with these skill sets. Robin also needs to delegate more people to work with the initial five lieutenants so that their knowledge can be passed on to all the new......

Robin Hood

...from being caught by the law. Robin Hood was an outlaw. However, he was not the normal outlaw that kills anything, takes anything, or does everything for only for themselves. Robin Hood was an outcast hiding from the law, but there were many people that loved him for the acts that he made to protect them against what they viewed was an unjust government. He was loved by the poor and shunned by the rich. Robin Hood, an outlawed hero in the 1300s, has a legendary history, driven by his unyielding values for justice and desire for balance in social classes, with ideals that have lived on till this day. Robin Hood’s legendary background is well known throughout the world. The author of Robin Hood is unknown. It is most likely a story that the poor told about a man that stole their money back from the rich. Over the centuries, the common people passed this story by word of mouth such that the story grew to be that of a man, Robin Hood, who stood up for something that was wrong in society. This story stayed alive by the affection that the people had for someone who stood up for them, thus the legend grew and grew. After all of these centuries, the author of the story has become the oppressed people that Robin Hood protected and fought for against a greedy government. He originated in the English culture and is known for his devotion to the poor. Robin Hood would rob the rich and give what he robbed to the poor. Most of the time, Robin Hood was robbing the sheriff......

...Robin Hood Case #1 Delta 4: MGT 515 Organizational Theory & Behavior Case Synopsis: In the case by Joseph Lampel, Robin Hood sets out to form allies among a group of men with the intentions of revolting against the Sheriff. Over the next year, Robin Hood spent his time forming the group to develop a disciplined crew able to successfully remove the enemy from office, the Sheriff. Robin took the initiative and was the person making the important decisions and the person delegating specific tasks. As training continued, the size of the band got increasingly larger and excitement for the project grew. Over time, however, the size of the band became a concern because discipline was becoming harder to enforce, food capacity was being exceeded, and game was becoming scarce. As the Sheriff himself grew stronger and became more organized, Robin and his men were falling behind. Sheriff success was attributed to being well regarded by Prince John. At the end of the case, Prince John invites Robin to join the conspiracy in return for future amnesty and despite his reservations; he attends but still prepares himself and his men for the upcoming raid. Discussion Question: Select one of the following motivation theories and explain in detail how you would use them to motivate the Merrymen: Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Goal –Setting, Reinforcement, or Expectancy. [3-4 Pages] According Robbins & Judge, Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs suggests there are five needs......

...CASE ANALYSIS EXAM 1 Situation Analysis Robin Hood and his Merrymen envision overthrowing the evil Sheriff and redistributing the wealth to the needy commoners. The current objective of the group is to pillage travelers and to give back to the community with no solid guidance to those engaged in those activities. In their pursuit of this endeavor they allowed men to join who may not have a complete sense of right and wrong; only those that had the drive to rise up against the Sheriff. Because of the lack of requirements for joining the group is not moving towards accomplishing to goal of de-seating the Sheriff and his allies. In fact, the Sheriff and his allies have with good communication and ample resources, have been able to raise enough defenses to retaliate and potentially put down the resistance. Robin Hood’s situation is one that is need of a solid purpose and strong values. In the business of pillaging and distribution of wealth the key stakeholders are Robin Hood, the original band of Merrymen, and the farmers and countrymen who provide for and enable the band. Robin Hood is expecting to be able to fulfill his need for vengeance against the current powers in charge. The employees are the original Merrymen who believe in Robin Hood’s vision; they also want to see it realized but they also receive a cut of the loot and depend on it for their livelihood. Consumers are the farmers and countrymen that depend on Robin Hood to protect them from over taxation and......

...Name Company Timothy W. Scott Mgmt 481, Spring 2002 Robin Hood It was in the spring of the second year of his insurrection against the High Sheriff of Nottingham that Robin Hood took a walk in Sherwood forest. As he walked he pondered the progress of the campaign, the disposition of his forces, the Sheriff's recent moves, and the options that confronted him. The revolt against the Sheriff had begun as a personal crusade. It erupted out of Robin's conflict with the Sheriff and his administration. However, alone Robin Hood could do little. He therefore sought allies, men with grievances and a deep sense of justice. Later he welcomed all who came, asking few questions, and demanding only a willingness to serve. Strength, he believed, lay in numbers. He spent the first year forging the group into a disciplined band, united in enmity against the sheriff, and willing to live outside the law. The band's organization was simple. Robin ruled supreme, making all important decisions. He delegated specific tasks to lieutenants. Will Scarlet was in charge of intelligence and scouting. His main job was to shadow the Sheriff and his men, always alert to their next move. He also collected information on the travel plans of rich merchants and tax collectors. Little John kept discipline among the men, and saw to it that their archery was at the high peak that their profession demanded. Scarlock took care of finances, converting loot to cash, paying shares...

Robin Hood

...Robin Hood and his Band of Merry Men had a successful first year. With new recruits pouring in from the furthest outreaches of England, Robin had met his objective of strengthening in number. Although he was satisfied with the size of the organization, he has realized necessary preparations had not been made to accommodate the now over abundance of members of his organization. Many challenges now face Robin such as a lack of provisions and lack of funds to support the band, but he cannot lose focus of their original foundation of "Robbing from the rich and giving to the poor". In addition they have to stay focused on their long term goal to remove Prince John from power by freeing King Richard from his imprisonment in Austria. Robin Hood has to form structure within his organization so that it can continue to grow and prosper. External Analysis Following are opportunities:  A fixed transit tax could be implemented to immediately increase revenues.  Accept the invitation from the Barons to join them in their quest to collect the ransom that would release King Richard the Lionhearted from his jail in Austria in return for Robin's future amnesty. The Barons assistance would alleviate problems concerning provisions.  Expansion of the operation to geographical areas to the north, south, east and west of Sherwood Forest for an opportunity to create new avenues of revenue.  The Merry Men could kill the sheriff therefore ending his reign of Nottingham.  An......

...Robin Hood Case Study Miguel Aristizabal Busines Strategy 9/13/2011 Professor Patton   1. Basic Organization Chart of Robin Hood’s Merrymen 2. Robin Hood’s Problems Robin and his Merrymen had a myriad of problems, some that were of more importance than others. One of his main problems was dealing with the Sheriff who he had revolted against due to a conflict with the Sheriff and his administration. The Sheriff was beginning to gain momentum against Robin and his men due to his growing strength, better organization and close ties to Prince John. Robin also faced the problems that came with a growing band such as the lack of food for everyone, the high cost of feeding everyone, and the decreasing discipline among the men. Furthermore, Robin was also confronted with the vicious and volatile Prince John who would seek rancorous revenge if he were to find out that Robin was part of the conspiracy to remove him from power.   3. Robin Hood and the Merrymen’s Future Mission and Plan I believe that continuing their present course of action will only result in financial failure and therefore the end of the Merrymen. This is because, just like any company today, innovation and change is necessary for survival in a strongly dynamic environment. Robin’s operating environment was changing drastically, as people began avoiding the forest so that they could avoid having their goods confiscated by Robin and his men. For this reason it is imperative that Robin and......

Robin Hood

...Robin Hood Analysis As Robin Hood’s most trusted advisor and the most knowledgeable member of his team on crafting and implementing strategies, I’ve taken a look at the current position of the band’s organization and identified some issues that Robin needs to address. These issues are; the size of the bivouac being too small to accommodate the growing number of Merrymen, the men talking and playing games between raids, lack of discipline, insufficient food capacity, obtaining supplies from outlaying villages because of game becoming scarce, declining revenues, resistance by his lieutenants and the Sheriff growing stronger and better organized. I would recommend a plan of action starting with revamping the original mission statement of “Rob the rich and give the poor” which was not working because travelers were avoiding passing through the forest and funds were drying up. A new mission statement would be “Our mission is to tax the rich and give to the poor to bring balance to the suffering they endure under the Sheriff.” I would perform a SWOT analysis to identify the strength and weaknesses of the band so that we can set performance objectives. Strength: Growing number of Merrymen Brand name of the Band Weakness: Discipline among the men Lack of organization throughout the Band Opportunities: Join Barons to free King Richard Threats: Sheriff growing stronger Sheriff had money and men to harass the band Sheriff had political connections and the......

...Robin Hood Case Study John Doe University of Michigan Schools of Graduate & Professional Programs GM 607A Instructor: Mr. Thomas April 21, 2012 Mr. Robin Hood, in analyzing your current situation I have devised a plan to help you proceed in light of the current situation you and your band of Merrymen are faced with at this time. The first steps I took in analyzing your situation were to determine your competitive strategy for your group. I determined based on research that your current competitive approach was a differentiation strategy. You rob from the rich and give to the poor, which differentiates your group from its competitors in Nottingham who do the exact opposite. You have positioned yourself to fill a niche with your customers with the goods you provide. Your tactics to generate your inventory/goods are also not matched by your competition. You have also created unique brand loyalty by offering a free service of goods to your customers, which are the poor farmers and townspeople that you service. The next steps I took after identifying your competitive strategy was to identifying your current problems and opportunities that you faced. With the popularity of your group of Merrymen growing rapidly, you attracted a significant amount of interest in other rebels to join your cause and serve as Merrymen. This added attention again resulted in your band of Merrymen to grow significantly to the point that now you are faced with......
