In order to accomplish everything that the CEO wants, she has agreed to let you do substantial research into companies that have failed and succeeded, and use those companies as a guide. She needs options. She needs reasons why each option may succeed or fail. She must present to the Board of Directors and needs real answers from you.
Do your research and design a report and presentation to present to the CEO and other executives.
