7) A state-of-the-art technology product is to be launched by a leading company on a widely advertised date, simultaneously at different locations in the country, for the first time. There is fantastic customer response and heavy booking for the product. A big event is planned in Bangalore for the launch to which many dignitaries, customers and media have been invited, thus ensuring extensive press coverage. The manager’s career hinges on the success of the event and the launch. Three days before the scheduled launch date, the manager’s deputy tells him that the trucks transporting the product have been detained at the octroi post outside Bangalore, apparently for want of some documents, and the octroi inspector is demanding a bribe for clearance of the consignment. “Should we pay the bribe?” the deputy manager asks the manager. What should the manager do? Discuss the course of action he can take. Keep in mind, that this is not an isolated incident. These kinds of things happen a lot in the country where a bribe is demanded for “quick solutions”. Discuss what approach should be followed in such situations.(250 words)
