1. Please examine the role of the parents in Reliance Industries. Using your readings to date, analyze the communication, relationships, culture, communication styles, and other appropriate topics. Consider the successor development and the succession plan. This is a very complex situation with sometimes subtle messaging. Please do not be superficial in your treatment of the issues.
2. Was the succession to the next generation successful or not? …From a family point of view?
…From a business point of view? Please elaborate on your opinions, citing facts from the case and lessons from your assigned readings. Would Dhirubhai be proud of his boys? Why or why not?
3. Please sum your analysis and provide suggestions from your readings, and then site your “take-aways” from this case. Provide specific citations to text and other course materials in support of your analysis.
