failed mergers and acquisitions
failed joint venture
inter-department collaboration failures within a company
companies’ unsuccessful collaboration/interaction with external stakeholder groups (e.g., local community, consumers, media, government, or business partners)

The following format should be followed:
Briefly describe the background of the case.
Apply the relevant OB concepts and theories to identify and explain the issues/problems that triggered the failure of the collaboration. Provide a diagnosis of the causes of these issues/problems.
Suggest how the issues/problems can be handled in a more effective way. Provide explanations and justifications for your recommendations.
The analysis should demonstrate a sound knowledge of OB-related concepts, theories, skills, and illustrate how that knowledge can be effectively applied to addressing real-world collaboration issues/problems.
