            - Engineering
            - Nursing
            - Business Administration
            - Arts and Sciences
            - Education
  • The school is experiencing profit instability

  • Few of the brightest members of faculty resigned to better-paying jobs
  • Shortage of instrumental supplies
  • Hope to resolve the crisis through infusion of additional funds
  • Number of scholars
  • Reward system
  • Tuition fees the lowest in the region 
II. Point of view
  • Mrs. Villante
III. Statement of the problem
This case analysis attempts to ascertain some major causes of the problem of the Buenavista Colleges. Mainly, it will be focusing on resolving issues encountered by the school. 
Specifically, it aims to answer the following given questions:
1.                          With whom would the case analyzer align himself as to resolving as a point of view?
2.                          What good points of Mrs. Villante’s and Rudy’s (son of Mrs. Villante) arguments?
IV. Objective
            The case analysis aims is to produce outputs that would help resolve the crisis Buenavista Colleges’ is facing and resort to good outcomes.

V. Areas of consideration (SWOT ANALYSIS)

-          Courses offered
-          The idea to resolve the crisis through fused additional funds
-          Thousand of scholars
-          Employee reward system
-          Low tuition fees
-          Brightest members of the faculty
-          The school is dwindling in profit instability
-          The need of building renovation and demolition of one building
-          Shortage of instrumental supplies

-          Turn few of the scholars into Working Scholars
-          Reduce manpower upon the existence of the Working Scholars
-          Continue the employee reward system
-          Increase 5% of all tuition fees at least every year

-          Bankruptcy 
VI. Alternative courses of action (3 with advantages and disadvantages)

1.                          Mrs. Villante’s idea of having each of her sons produce to produce 1 million pesos is one good alternative course of action. With the 5-million-to-be coupled with the help of the existence and fully operating working scholars, it will help the school to reduce cash out instead of cash in. the only disadvantage here will be, it is going to be a sacrifice from each of sons end.

2.                          The employee reward system is also a good strategy that has been existing in the school that just needs to be enhanced. By this time, it should be a reward system for really good performing employees. However, it would somehow increase the rate of employee resignation because some of the employees who have enjoying the reward system are those that are non-good performing employees in the workplace.

3.                          Motivation for the remaining brightest faculties would also be a good tool. It will encourage them show good examples to the non-good performer faculties to do good at work as well and be included to the few remaining brightest faculties. In contrast, there might some faculties who resistant to changes and prideful.

VII. Conclusion:

Whatever confrontation will arise from between Mrs. Villante and her son Rudy, still the bottom line is to save the school from bankruptcy. Therefore the best thing alternative course of action to take is the one that best suit to addressing the problem.

VIII. Recommendation

The three alternative courses of actions are good tools to address the problem. However, the best recommendation I will have implemented as Mrs. Villante’s point of view is the first one.
