Case Study: Microsoft Dealing with Stakeholders

A lot of corporations have ached from bad relationships with their stakeholders. Microsoft has not done so much better. Ironically, Microsoft has a reputation of being a great-networked company— a company that flourishes on its stakeholder relationships. However, computer hardware and component manufacturers, software developers, and suppliers have all joined to generate and sell computers that run Windows 95, the Microsoft’s operating system.

However, as a result of bad P.R. ascending from its hypothetical ruthless treatment of contractors and greedy actions toward competitors, Microsoft is now dealing with some of its other stakeholders—the public, investors, government regulators, and employees.

We will discuss this real case and others in the form of a workshop and group activities.
