Jorge, as the global team manager, was hired to manage some new global teams for Alternative Source Inc. (ASI), an alternative-energy company implementing wind, solar, and water-generated energy systems throughout the globe.
Jorge had worked previously for a gas exploration company in North America, so he simply hired many of his previous company’s employees who had worked for him at the gas exploration company. Jorge deployed the teams along with their families to work with Indian nationals and clients in India.
Since India is such a large country, although there is some autonomy for the teams, all decisions were made by Jorge and then subsequently communicated with the teams.
After 5 months in the field, the teams are not performing well. The team members are frustrated by what they termed as internal conflicts and “the clients’ lack of cooperation,” and their families seemed to be unhappy in the new environment.
The ASI executive management team is beginning to ask questions not only regarding the team’s performance but also regarding the hiring process used. ASI has an employee handbook saying that the company hires people based on abilities from a diverse pool of candidates that also represent their diversity of global clients.
