BUSINESS LAW CASE STUDY

DescriAnswer all 4 questions.
HA2022 Business Law, Tri 3, 2011
1. Margaret owned an antique store that specialised in rare porcelain dolls. When she
opened the business in 1989, it was at a shop in an eastern suburb of Melbourne. In 1999
she started to advertise on the Internet and by 2006 the business had grown to the point
where she needed help to keep the business going. After a family discussion one night at
the kitchen table in July 2006, it was agreed that Margaret would probably keep the
business going for another couple of years and then retire. Emily, her youngest daughter
and aged 16, would work in the shop as long as was needed and in return, she would
receive any unsold dolls. When Margaret retired at the end of 2009, she decided that she
would give the unsold stock to charity and they could auction it and keep the proceeds.
Advise Emily.
2. Richard, an impoverished university student, and his millionaire father enter into an
arrangement where Richard agrees that he will keep the front- and backyards of the
family property mowed, and he will ‘do a bit’ to keep the gardens looking tidy. In return,
his father agrees to pay him a weekly allowance of $200. His father had previously used a
garden contractor to do the job and paid him $350. They live on a one-hectare property,
and the mowing alone takes half a day a week. After four weeks, Richard’s father tells him
that he can’t afford to pay $200 a week. He says that Richard should be doing the work
for nothing, as it is the responsibility of the whole family to look after the property;
besides, he says, Richard is getting free board and lodging. Advise Richard.
3. Jenny received a circular from Beauty and the Beast Hair Salon advertising massages and
manicures for $10. Realising that this was an exceptionally good deal, but not surprised
because she knew that they had only just opened and were running a number of good
opening specials, she rang and made a booking. When Jenny arrived at the salon she was
told that there had been a mistake on the circular and it should have said $100. The
manager of the salon explained that this was still a good price because normally a
massage and manicure would have cost $150. Jenny was furious, as it had taken her 30
minutes to get to the shop by car and if she had known it would cost $100, she would
never have made the booking. Advise Jenny. Would your advice have been any different if
Jenny had the massage and manicure before being told that the cost was $100? Would
she have to pay the full price?
4. Bruce, while he was so drunk that he didn’t know what he was doing, bid successfully at
an auction for the purchase of a house. It was clear to the auctioneer that Bruce didn’t
know what he was doing. However, after Bruce sobered up he confirmed the contract
with the auctioneer. He then subsequently refused to complete the contract. Is Bruce be bound your assignment

DIAGNOSTIC MODELS AND CHANGE IN TATA MOTORS

QUESTION

Overview of Organizational Change Case: Tata Motors in 2001

Organizational Change is much required in any organization. (Warner, 2002) It is usually seen as a gap between the current and the desired state that the firm wishes to achieve. People say that if there is a requirement then there should be a change that needs to be thought of and implemented. But if there is none then why should firms even think of changing. In this context there are many global companies that have undergone change for their current or future benefit and have reaped excellent profits or have fulfilled their short term or long term objectives. One such case is of Tata Motors which is one of the largest automobile company’s in India, with exceptionally good revenues. The company has a huge base of employees working across all major locations across the globe. TM has been one of those companies that have always laid great emphasis on innovation, building trust, carrying out ethics, change management for benefits of its stakeholders.

LEADERSHIP AND CHANGES IN SOCIAL INSTITUTIONS

QUESTION

“Top down change can only have limited success in a social institution.” Discuss it in the context of the social sector in which you work (charitable organization, NGOs, voluntary welfare organization, etc.).
This assessment is worth 40% of the total marks and the word limit is 2000 (Due on 3 October 2011)
If you are not working in a social sector, then focus on “Top down change can only have limited success in the sector where your workplace is situated”. It can be an educational sector; public sector; not-for-profit sector; for-profit sector, etc
Suggestion on how to approach this assignment:
Look for a top down change initiative and describe this change initiative using words such as incremental (1st order) or transformation (2nd order); internal trigger or external trigger; etc (slide 33 and 34 from topic 1)
When you discuss why this top down change can only have limited success (or maybe a failure or maybe a success), define what do you mean by the term “limited success”; or “failure” or “successful”.
Who are the stakeholders involved and their perspective of this top down change initiative?
Examples of areas ( if they are applicable to your work situation) which you may want to analyse with regard to this top down change initiative which is of limited success or a failure or a success:
Leadership style
Organisation culture
Resistance to change
Typology of change (the different colours)
Change environment
Change strategy
Knowledge management
Moral purpose
