ICM: Hidden agendas in the board room (B)

1 pages
October 2005
Reference: IMD-3-1534

The case presents a situation where the chairman of the board thought he was on track with an expansion plan. Hidden agendas entered the board room though. Even worse, the chairman was not aware of them until the board needed to take a decision and voted against the project – to the big surprise of the chairman. Case A provides the context of the decision. Case B provides an explanation for the disaster.
