Product Overview

Marsha Harris accepts a new position as a Chief Financial Officer for Divisional Marketing, Sales and Distribution functions of a huge appliance manufacturer. On her first day on the job, she's told she was chosen for the job because she's a woman. One year after taking the position, she's told by her boss to reduce her staff of 250 by 47 percent. Hence, the case can be used to discuss corporate downsizing efforts in the context of the current interest in "re-engineering."
