Real-Time Leadership at Fabrinet (A): Navigating through the 2011 Thailand flood crisis
Bahrami, Homa , and Stuart Evans
Publication date: 2/19/2014, pages 1-17

This case provides an understanding of the "real-time" leadership concept. It examines Fabrinet's preparation in advance of the 2011 Thailand floods and how it restarted manufacturing within three weeks after one of its two Thailand-based plants that accounted for 40 percent of its total production capability was deemed inoperable. Students will evaluate the "real-time" leadership abilities of Fabrinet's management. The case ends with asking students to evaluate "real-time" leadership within their own organization, to identify the most relevant leadership lessons, and to contrast "real-time" leadership with traditional leadership. Please note: This case also has a (B) supplement available.
