In 2013 a group of friends and me decided to start a not-for-profit organization by the name of Strategy & Enterprise Architecture Society (SEAS Inc.). SEAS continues to be registered in the State of North Carolina in the United States and has amassed 800+ participants by the end of 2015.
Due to numerous career moves, busy lives, and the demands of a hectic schedule, we stopped further development of SEAS.
Nonetheless, we developed and published a case study in 2013 that was very useful to business majors, executive leaders, and University professors. It is based on a fictitious company called Acme Building Materials plagued with problems.
The case study describes the organization, it’s management, issues its facing, and it’s P&L at a moment in time and challenges the reader to find a solution. We also provided an answer key in the published case study.
For nostalgia purposes, I am attaching the case study here as some of our readers might find some useful nuggets of information and we encourage anyone in an educational or mentor capacity to use this case study to help facilitate understanding.
