co-operative; human resources management; ownership structure
The time of case is year 1992, and the decision-maker introduced is Mr. Savolainen, a member of Kilon Osuus-Auto, a Worker Co-operative in Espoo, Finland, who has learned that three members in the company had refused to pay their share of a new equity issue. Teaching objectives of this case are to show the special features of a co-operative regarding the structure and management of a co-operative, as well as to illustrate some personnel problems, which might arise in a co-operative.
This case is unconventional in the sense that part A and B are in fact the same. Part A has been designed for use in shorter time period, to students with a better background knowledge on cooperative as a type of business. Part B goes further into detail on Finland, Finnish transportation industry as well as on cooperatives as an ownership form, hence more pages.
