Project Report

Step-by-step instructions

Step 1: Identify a Failed Collaboration with Significant Issues/Stakes

Identify a specific case of collaboration failure for an in-depth analysis. The case may be from published materials (e.g., books, magazines, and newspapers) or from the company that you have worked for. This case should involve significant issues and important stakes for the company involved. For example, the case could be about:

  • failed mergers and acquisitions
  • failed joint venture
  • companies’ unsuccessful collaboration/interaction with external stakeholder groups (e.g., local community, consumers, media, government, or business partners) – NOT INDIVIDULE LEVEL COLLABORATION

Step 2: Analyze the Case of a Failed Collaboration

This case should be analyzed by the concepts, models, and theories presented in the textbook, assigned readings, and lectures. Like a literature review.

Step 3: Prepare a Report of the Case of a Failed Collaboration

The following format should be followed:

  • Briefly describe the background of the case.
  • Apply the relevant OB concepts and theories to identify and explain the issues/problems that 
triggered the failure of the collaboration. Provide a diagnosis of the causes of these 
  • Suggest how the issues/problems can be handled in a more effective way. Provide explanations 
and justifications for your recommendations.
  • The analysis should demonstrate a sound knowledge of OB-related concepts, theories, skills, and 
illustrate how that knowledge can be effectively applied to addressing real-world collaboration issues/problems                                                  ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
