In the Robin Hood case, we can easily apply the principles of a business organization. Robin was the CEO of the Merrymen. He made all important decisions. Will Scarlett was in charge of intelligence and scouting. John kept discipline among the men. Scurlock took care of the finances. Those were their top management in the organization. Their first goal was to expand the size of their own organization. Then they wanted to help the poor citizens by stealing from the rich. Also, they wanted to grow with allies and new recruits to become a very large organization. Finally, they wanted to destroy the Sheriff’s policy and control.
