In the Romano Pitesti case, Tickton-Jones’ Management Team is faced with a situation that is not altogether uncommon in the business world, in that some employees feel that members of the Sales staff are being given “special” treatment by the company. Romano’s actions have probably not been as bad as what has been described to Management, but due to the fact that employees are still trying to find their place in the new, combined company, any hint of “unfairness” is immediately put under a microscope by other employees, and therefore, Management will have to take some sort of action, in order to show the other employees that their concerns are being taken seriously.

Unfortunately, the same issues that existed with the overall governance existed here. The company may have been acting as an exemplary corporate citizen, but with no overall strategy and minimal communication, there was no consistency or coordination, and the company was not getting the public relations benefits that they might have otherwise gained (Veleva, 2010).
The issues in this case are clear. Euroland has a long history that at one time dominated the market. Unfortunately, our days as leader have vanished. We are currently trading at a price below comparable companies. This can be attributed to our reduced profitability and our failure to gain sufficient market share for new products. The market signaling for Euroland is not good. Analysts are encouraging people to sell their stocks.

To stay competitive and capture the market share that has been lost, significant investments will need to be made into the company.
