Magellan versus Quesada: To mutiny or not to mutiny?

  • Case study
    • Price: $4.25
    • By Urs Muller
    • ESMT Berlin
    • Date of Publication: 2019
  • Summary: This case provides a useful opportunity for classes to learn about following by considering its opposite: mutiny. Instructors can use it to discuss questions such as, “How bad do people have to think their manager is before they contemplate open resistance?” “What alternatives do they have?” “What is authority and why do people submit to it?” “What is a ‘good’ follower?” “What happens when managers deviate from conventions in negative ways?”
