Read Dutch Shell Case and Answer the following questions
- If you are one of those top 200 senior managers sitting in that room in Berlin listening to CEO Voser roll-out his plan, what is your reaction when you hear that the Executive Committee with be all white males-no Asians, nobody from Africa, the Middle East, or Latin America?
- What do you make of the comment by a senior leader that any reputational hit that Voser gets regarding the composition of the new executive committee is “pain worth the gain” because he is “getting the team he needs to move Shell where he wants”?
- In most countries there are groups that are systemically excluded from opportunities (e.g., women in Saudi Arabia). What responsibility, if any, does a business leader have to provide opportunities to these groups? Do they have a responsibility if there are no hard facts that it improves the bottom line? Would the concept of ethnocentrism, be considered in your decision making?
