Resisting Bureaucratic Corruption: Alacrity Housing Chennai (B) (Teaching Case Study)
S. Ramakrishna Velamuri
Alacrity Housing Chennai is a two-part case that shows Amol Karnad's ethical and innovative approach to launching and operating a construction business in Chennai, Southern India. Part B of the case shows Alacrity's business downturn and the precarious situation that it faces in 2002. The company has severe cash flow problems and is able to neither pay its employees' salaries nor distribute dividends to its shareholders. With new leadership initiatives, a change in management, and a 'home-schooling' program, Alacrity is accused of being inefficient and having lost its focus.
