Musa’s Predicament and the MBA Capstone Project Team

Ghufran Ahmad and Nehan Hussain

Asian Journal of Management Cases, 2021, vol. 18, issue 1, 65-79

Abstract: The case is focused on the difficult challenges faced by a second-year MBA Capstone Project Team at the Suleman Dawood School of Business, Lahore University of Management Sciences in Pakistan. The project deadline is closing in; however, the team is facing serious work-related and interpersonal issues with detrimental consequences for the team dynamics and ultimate success of the project. As one of the founding members of the team, Musa is perplexed and confused about how to resolve the conflicts in the team, which has divided into two factions due to the mishandling of the situation by another team member, Elias. The faculty advisor to the team has called an emergency meeting, and Musa wants to find a way out of the current crisis to complete the project successfully. The case also illustrates gender-based biases that may surface in specific cultural contexts.
