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 his lieutenants. Will Scarlett 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 the finances, converting loot to cash, paying shares of the take, and finding suitable hiding places for the surplus. Finally, Much the Miller’s son had the difficult task of provisioning the ever increasing band of Merrymen.

The increasing size of the band was a source of satisfaction for Robin, but also a source of concern. The fame of his Merrymen was spreading, and new recruits were pouring in from every corner of England. As the band grew larger, their small bivouac became a major encampment.…...

If we look at the Ansoff’s Matrix then that would give an alternative approachThe Third (3 rd ) gives the following possible Alternatives • Robinhood can levy regular or fixed taxed on the merchants who pass by their territory. Thiswould be regular tax. Levying regular tax shall act a constant source of income. Also, themerchants can be informed that they will not be looted in case they adhere to the taxpolicies. They will be rather protected in Robin Hood’s Territory. This shall be a win-winsituation for both as Robinhood shall get regular income and merchandisers don’t have toworry about getting looted in forest and can concentrate on other issues. • He should encourage a villager (Someone not from his group and quite popular) to becomehis spokesperson and representative in the kingdom. • He should ask people to participate in the King Richard’s rescue mission. The 4 th Quadrant gives this alternative: • Robinhood should not recruit new men in his group and should rather diversify. He shouldprovide his men with funds and support to become merchants and trader. The group thusformed should be supported and hence they can use their power to threat other merchantsas well as the prince. • He should bond and increase his relationship with the farmers.

He could have put on a false friendship with a millionaire and said, “Hey, my wife’s dying, can you give me this money?” And so is that any different? I don’t know... that sounds just as bad. But it’s not illegal. So, I mean . . . it would be just as bad - probably. Appendix C SR: (laughs) I hate this. Ok, ‘the lesser of two evils’. Josh: Should Heinz steal the drug? SR: So, you want a simple answer. You know, I don’t think there’s always a simple answer when it comes to ethical questions. ‘Cause to me this sounds like ethics and morality, because you’re dealing with the issue of stealing in order to help somebody - like the ‘robinhood’ situation, right? “Rob from the rich and give to the poor”. I mean, you’ve got a guy that’s definitely gouging, because it costs him nothing to make, but he’s selling it and wants to make good money off of it . . . I don’t believe in adding ‘wrong’ to ‘wrong’, saying that ‘wrong’ is going to make it better. . . In this situation, instead of stealing, I might have done everything I could to come up with more money . . .

Business- Robin hoods uses a Focus/Niche strategy because his only source of revenue is stealing from the rich. He should use a Differentiation strategy to get more sources of income.

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. small bivouac became a major encampment. Between raids the men milled about, talking and playing games. Vigilance was in decline, and discipline was becoming harder to enforce. “Why?” Robin reflected, “I don’t know half the men I run into these days.” 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 only demanding a willingness to serve. Strength, he believed, lay in numbers. The growing band was also beginning to exceed the food capacity of the forest. Game was becoming scarce, and supplies had to be obtained from outlying villages. The cost of buying food was beginning to drain the band’s financial reserves at the very moment when revenues were in decline. Travelers, especially those with the most to lose, were now giving the forest a wide berth. This was costly and inconvenient to them, but it was preferable to having all their goods confiscated. He spent the first year forging the group into a...

Robinhood Case

...Robinhood case Introduction and Mission 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......

Robinhood Case

...1. What problems does Robin Hood have? What issues need to be addressed? Ans: The Increasing size of the band had been the core problem for Robin Hood, because it was getting very hard to manage the band. The core issues were the lack of discipline in band and the cost of buying the food was draining the bands financial reserves. 2. Do Robin Hood and his band need a new mission? new objectives? For example: why not accept the offer of the barons to assist in securing King Richard¡¯s release from prison (give me pros and cons for that possible new mission, and do you suggest adopt this new mission)? Ans: Yes, Robin Hood and his band need a new mission, a new objective and a good strategy. He should adopt a new mission to free the people from Prince John and return king Richard to the throne. Robin Hood can also join with barons to collect the ransom to release King Richard. This option might seems risky but he has to do something, which is better than doing nothing and getting caught my Sheriff. His present strategy has been outdated and it could not work at the time when his enemy is too strong and well planned. 3. . What strategic options does Robin Hood have? Is continuing with the present strategy an option or is the present strategy obsolete? For example, why not try to end the campaign by killing the Sheriff; why not try to move to another region?...
