Why Tasnims Group does fall?
In the year 2015, the chief executive officer of Tasnims Group had decided to expand the company. For that, they had invested in the aviation market and started “Ankan Airlines”.
“Ankan Airlines” was Bangladesh’s first private jet service provider. But the market size for the company in Bangladesh was almost zero. To survive in the market “Ankan Airlines” expanded its services outside Bangladesh.
With a limited amount of budget, “Ankan Airlines” had expanded in a very competitive market. After one year “Ankan Airlines” had failed to raise funds to continue the operations. Though the company was generating revenue day by day it may need 2 years more to establish itself perfectly in the market.
Lack of funding and poor operational root choice was the major reasons for Tasnims Group’s tremendous loss. At the same time, the management of the company was not able to make appropriate strategies. The fall of “Tasnims Group of companies” was an example of improper business model, inefficient management and poor market assumption.
How Tasnims Group Bounced Back?
After a massive loss, it was pretty sure that the company is going to be bankrupted. Every month Tasnims Group was suspending workers to reduce the cost of maintenance. But the board of directors did not lose their hope on the chief executive officer. With very limited resources Tasnims Group had to come back on the track.
At the beginning of 2019, the CEO had called off all kinds of operations of the companies. It was like the company has fallen down. But after 6 months suddenly the company bounced back in the market with 4 companies. The board was rearranging the setup and operational plans and policies.
Why BOD Members did not Change CEO?
During the crises period, all predicted that the CEO will be suspended. But the BOD members had a blind eye trust on the CEO and the management.
