Evergreen Enhancement Case Analysis

Problem Statement

Richard Alpert must show great leadership as well as make a bold decision and choose Faraday

for the promotion as head of the managing VP despite his slightly low performance when

compared to Pace. Pace uses a performance-enhancing drug of Adderall that creates unfair

competition to colleagues and competitors (Harris & Mead, 2012).

Alternative Solutions

Alternative 1:

Richard Alpert should meet personally (privately) and discuss the concern that he has

about Pace use of Adderall. The discussion should be objective where each party should

present their views and positions including the reason Alpert should consider the

promotion of Faraday. This approach would give both parties an opportunity to understand

each other better and the impact that such actions has not only to Pace but also the colleagues

and competitors as a whole. Furthermore, the possible impact that the company might have when

such information becomes public that might tarnish the image and name of the company. It

would also assert whether Pace knows the short and long-term impacts of using such drugs or

not, and provide an opportunity for change.

Alternative 2:

Richard Alpert should convene an urgent meeting of all employees and introduce a policy

of a drug-free environment where employees would be screened for drug use. It would also

provide an opportunity and platform to educate the entire employees of the impacts that

performance-enhancing drugs have to their lives, colleagues and competitors and possible legal

and moral impacts. It would provide a long-term solution to the problem where employees can

also educate those close to them about the concerns of drugs.

Recommended Solution:

The best approach is for Richard Albert to meet personally and discuss with Pace about the

concern so that the two parties might understand each other better and possible reasons why Pace

is taking such moves and the impacts that it has to all the concerned stakeholders in the

Evergreen company. It is also because of the limited time constraints that he has before he makes

the decision.
