For teaching purposes, this is the commentary-only version of the HBR contextual investigation. The case-just form is reproduce R0201X. The entire contextual investigation and editorial is republish R0201A. Annette Innella is simply coming into the break room at Concord Machines when Bob Dunn begins shouting at her. In the wake of tossing his lunch plate against the divider, he steps out, leaving Annette paralyzed. Actually, Annette, the new senior VP for information administration, is close to herself. She knows her proposition to build up a cross-utilitarian learning administration board of trustees is dynamic deduction for this old-line producer, yet Bob's response is absolutely over the line. On the off chance that Bob stays, she goes- - it's as simple as that. Bounce is penitent, yet he's under a considerable measure of weight. The general administrator of the Services Group, he's just came back from a two-week trip the world over to adapt his troops to beat income targets once more, in spite of contracting spending plans and employing solidifies. Presently an email from Annette asks for that two of his best individuals commit a large portion of their opportunity to what he calls her "stupid" Knowledge Protocols Group. President Jay Nguyen is stuck a spot. Bounce is his top administrator - he acquires all the cash. Also, despite the fact that future incomes will need to originate from elsewhere, Jay is not absolutely behind Annette's drive in the present business atmosphere. He can't bear to lose Bob. Yet, in the event that he gets control over Annette, it will resemble he's overlooking Bob's upheaval. What would it be a good idea for him to do? In R0201A and R0201Z, four observers offer counsel on this anecdotal contextual analysis.
