Vigilance over the Sheriff was seriously lacking
Dwindling financial resources
Prince John (allied with the Sheriff) His Mission: To create a disciplined band of Merrymen, whose insurrection pursues justice in the form of fair taxation and representation by implementing a governing body that acquires and manages resources efficiently for all constituents within the Sherwood Forest.

Vision: We will ultimately reinstate King Richard to the position of prince, ensuring amnesty for Robin Hood and all his followers. Generic (Focused Differentiation) – service appeals to unique preferences of narrow, well defined group: people who want King Richard back and men with grievances Supporting (Strategic Alliance, Outsourcing) – alliances with men with grievances and townspeople. Outsourcing of intelligence, discipline, financing, and provisioning Building an Organizaion Capable of Good Strategy Execution

+ Small group of “upper management”
+ No requirements
Building Competencies and Capabilities

+ Rebuild or build new ones
+ Insufficent structure throughout the organization

The cost of buying food was draining the financial reserves of the band and revenues were in decline. What venues Robin Hood opt for?

Options pros cons rob the rich give to the poor
conspire with the barons
convince the merryman to pay taxes

Rob the rich give to the poor
Its no longer working
Conspire with the barons
Merrymen paying taxes
negative reaction by Merrymen

Collect taxes
Screen applicants
Include outside help
Encourage the Merrymen
Act as a leader

Robin Hood is the main leader

No true strategy or plans leading decision
making process
Marshalling Resources

Able to allocate resources well in the beginning
Organization grew but resources did not.
Use of resources is out of control
Possibly expand operations into other geographical areas
Policies and Procedures

No clear policies or procedures to make organization profitable
Procedures end with planning a “raid” or attack
No clear mention of how to initiate, execute, how profits are divided etc.
Only true policy “Rob the rich, give to the poor”

Adopting Best Practices

Does not appear to have an organization to adopt best practices from
Could adopt best practices from the Sherrif
Could also adopt practices from military organiztions (the kings army)
Information and Operating Systems

No normal information or operating systems given case time frame
Develop an “information network” if expanding geographically.
Tying Rewards

Merrymen currently monetarily rewarded
No clear measurement of rewards to performance
No form of punishment
No tell of non monetary rewards
Rob the Rich give to the poor
originally worked in the begininng
Conspire with the barons
more of a possibility of freeing King Richard

How to command his band to go on the offense/defense knowing that the Sheriff was becoming stronger and better organized?
What other resources can Robin Hood utilize to counteract the Sheriff‘s strong political connections?
