Robin Hood’s Case and His Strategic Issues Case Study
Updated: Mar 26th, 2021
Robin was one of those who advocate justice during the reign of the corrupt Sherriff. He was not able to stand the rule of the sheriff who had been employing the dictatorship. The minor groups were at a disadvantage since there were no fair rules. The Sherriff was a wealthy man who had been robbing people using taxation. Also, he had the rigid support of people who were noted to be very wealthy but did not have any political security or advantage. Robin started campaigning by organizing small crusades hoping that people would join him in his dream to overthrow Sherriff. This could not work at first because he had not formed a firm foundation for his group members. Also, he had not clearly explained his reasons for the rebellious actions.
His thought of forming a group was commendable because unity would be their primary source of strength. By creating this group, there were more plans that Robin was to make to accomplish his task of defeating the Sherriff. He had a good idea of using people who believed in justice and were also against his opponent. These people were the best choice because they had a common goal with their leader Robin. Therefore, no one was able to act out as a deceptive mind that could pull the group down. One primary source of weakness for Robin was a sinister organization and motive. The wrong reason was his thought of killing the Sherriff.
Robin Hood could have overcome the obstacles he was facing if he had changed the organization’s policies by adopting a less centralized leadership style and allowing more segregation of duties. However, I think he should disband the organization’s functions because the organization’s mission is ethically wrong, and no matter how poor those people are, I believe that stealing is not the best solution.
The group formed by Robin had been inspiring due to their dedication. Also, the number of group members was increasing day after day, which meant that Robin had a strong force in terms of security. However, it resulted in some confusion as the leader did not recognize other members. This could be a source of failure for the organization.
This status of the organization called for critical strategic measures. The leader was to devise a method for improving the organization. He was to start with creating a bond between himself and his men, especially during the moments that they were faced with the food crisis, and the Sherriff was becoming even more vital. He was to start with his men and allow for more discussions on how they could spend their limited resources. Finances were most important, and they were to devise a way of getting income without getting the help of the minority or poor citizens. The group was also to make a decision on reducing the number of Merrymen to a more considerate and manageable number.
In addition, the group had to strategize on how they were going to bar the sheriff from having to increase strength and fame. This was to start from the grassroots level (Heath 2009). The campaign against the Sherriff was not supposed to be a huge deal. Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the Sherriff would be quite an excellent idea. This would help the Merrymen attack the weak points or else challenge the supporters of the Sherriff, who were his great accomplices, to a duel. By providing the best services to people, Robin and his men would gain political goodwill from people.
