1) An issue that Robin Hood has come across is that he and his band of Merrymen are slowly being crushed. In the beginning of his second year, Robin Hood was doing extremely well. It seemed that he had everything organized and under controlled; he had new recruits coming in from all over England, and he has assigned specific tasks for each of his lieutenants. This growing number of Merrymen is becoming the main issue for Robin Hood.

His plan is working for him now, but will backfire on him, which has already started. They are approaching food capacity, supplies are becoming scared, and the cost of food is draining the band financially. Robin Hood needs to focus on this issue and come up with a better strategy for the future.

Implemented a strategic vision will answer the three important question, which includes “What is the present situation?” “Where does the band need to go from here?” “How should it get there?” RH will apply objectives, and when these goals are laid out clearly the Merrymen will know exactly what they need to do. An organized plan will result in a successful defeat. This solution also has some downfalls. A strategic vision may be better organized for the band, but the Merrymen may not all agree with the goals implemented by RH. Each person has their own ideas and opinions; and if they can’t voice their opinions, members may just walk out on RH. My second solution is to apply a scanning process. This will be successful if the process is done properly. RH currently is accepting anyone who wants to...
