This case study is about Robin Hood and his Marrymen’s run-ins with the Sheriff of Nottingham. In the second year of revolt of Robin against Sheriff, with large numbers of recruits, pouring in, from every corner of England, Robin met his objective of strengthening man force. Although he was satisfied with the strength of the band, he realized resources and funds are insufficient to meet the needs of the organization, but they cannot drop the idea of “Robbing the Rich and Giving to Poor”.
To sort with the problem of decreasing revenues, Robin proposed the idea of taxing his allies. Also, they need to stay focused on their major goal to reinstate King Richard, the Lionheart, to the position of Prince, as to ensure future amnesty for Robin Hood and his men.
ROBIN HOOD : decision maker and delegator of power * SCARLOCK : took care of finances and all monetary matters. * WILL SCARLETT : Intelligence and scouting in-charge * LITTLE JOHN : kept discipline among men * Much (Miller’s son) : provisioning the increasing band of merrymen Although the current management structure was proved successful in the past, but with the increase in number of marrymen whole structure was demolished due to scarcity of food and resources, finance non-availability as well as disciplinary problems.
And Robin’s idea of taxing his own allies, to meet the finance problem, was unfavorable to the farmers and the townspeople’. But current management structure proves out to be a chaos because of lawlessness and mismanagement. ISSUES
The band of merry men cannot rely solely on robbing from rich merchants.
It is not meeting their financial needs and thus causing low productivity among them. * The band is rising at an uncontrollable rate in Sherwood Forest which thus is not able to provide sanctuary and the provisions; the band needs to survive, whereas, the sheriff’s men are growing stronger and better organized. * The rich merchants, who once passed through Sherwood Forests, are now changing routes so as to escape from their goods being confiscated by Robin Hood’s band, which is causing loss of revenue.
Little John is facing difficulty in controlling discipline because of large size of band that he is in-charge of overseeing. * If Robin accepts the Baron’s invitation to join their campaign and it fails, Robin could cause himself and his band suffer consequences in the court. But it would be a good political move if Robin shows little support in the efforts that Barons’ are making as to release King Richard from jail. * As Robin himself stated, that he can hardly recognize half of the men in his group, an ever growing threat was the great number of spies loyal to Prince John.
