Product Overview

This updated version of the popular FMC Aberdeen case (UVA-OB-0385) describes the unique history and management of a startup plant, now owned by BAE Systems, that manufactures guided-missile canisters for the U.S. Navy. Management is minimized; most of the work is done by self-directed work teams. Suitable for courses or modules on organizational behavior, self-directed work-teams, manufacturing, organization design, high-performance workplaces, management, and leadership, the case reviews the plant's history, philosophy, recruiting methods, evaluation procedure, reward mechanism, career development, and information systems.
