Johnston, Kim A. (2007) Changing the guard : launching a new CEO at Waters & O'Neil. International Journal of Case Method Research & Application, XIX(2), pp. 192-199.
The arrival of a new chief executive officer (CEO) heralds both the promise and opportunity of organizational change and adjustment. This case study explores the challenges and opportunities of taking a strategic approach to introducing a new CEO into a medium sized organization. The CEO perspective of this case provides a unique insight into the journey of a CEO integrating both personal and professional goals into the setting. The window of opportunity that arises for a new CEO to effect change is an important insight for management and organizational communication students.
