Against the backdrop of an increasingly globalized business environment, this book provides readers with a pragmatic approach to strategic management of complex issues that arise from the tension between fiduciary and ethical priorities. If the challenge of management is making decisions in situations of uncertainty, Mining Conflict in the Philippines is the ultimate test of finding business solutions in extremely volatile situations. Based on firsthand experience and years of rigorous research, this book leverages a real-world case of a global mining company facing the challenge of doing business in a highly unpredictable environment in which staff and assets are under threat by a local organization that wants the company to leave. Putting readers in the role of consultants to a client operating in the area lets them experience defining moments of managing this potentially explosive scenario under considerable time pressure and only partial information. Almost as if "parachuting" into an escalating conflict scenario, readers form critical relationships with characters that introduce them to management tools and techniques they need to arrive at a successful conclusion. The excitement and intensity of Mining Conflict in the Philippines equips business leaders of today and tomorrow with valuable know-how they can apply to the uncertainties of everyday business in an international context.
