1) Do you think it was justified in appointing Mike UIIman, an outsider, as CEO instead if Jessica Robert considering that Jessica Robert was instrumental in turning around the organization in the early 2005s? 1.0 Introduction
In deciding whether to choose Jessica Robert or Mike UIIman (an outsider) depends on what the company wants to achieve or change. It all depends on the ethics, visions, cultures, and budget of the business 1.1 Argument to justify whether to recruit Mike UIIman or Jessica Robert In fact it all depends on the track of Jessica Robert and Mike UIIman, what they have achieved and what they can bring to the company so that they can make their best out of all and expand the business furthermore. Moreover, things like where the business is going need to be taken into considerations such as their needs and objectives that they want to achieve. If new ideas and insights are needed; then appointing an outsider (Mike UIIman) with a different angle or perhaps with different visions of their actual business would be of great benefit to them like Allen White is a justified one. New skills and knowledge will be implemented in the business. But somehow, it could be very expensive because he is meant to come in and produce results right away; they usually require a high level of compensation for their commitment to turning the company around since it will involve a lot of pressure. Gaining employees loyalty can also be difficult and adaptation of the company’s ethics and culture might be difficult for Mike UIIman On the other hand, appointing Jessica Robert can be far less risky as she already knows the strengths and weaknesses of the organization. Thus less time will be taken by her to adapt as she understands how the company operates, understand its mission and have easy familiarity with task processes. Besides, more appreciation would be given to her; for the hard worked she has been doing during 2005 and 2010. Likewise, it could be a great motivation for her and the rest of the employees and will make them work harder because they know they can have a chance of being promoted later; thus reducing labour turnover and increasing productivity. But sometimes when people work in an environment for too long it is harder to see things in different lights that is why it might be difficult for Jessica Robert to bring in new ideas. Sometimes, loyal employees need to remain in their current positions because that is where they perform the best and sometimes when they are promoted to a higher level, they cannot cope with all the responsibilities and thus productivity decreases.
To Conclude I think that promoting Jessica Robert to be the new CEO can be less risky in the short-term, but if MIKE JOSEPH want to implement and develop new perspectives for his business, then in the long-term the appointment of MIKE UIIMAN is more justified.
