What are most significant management failures in this case? The factors that I thought were huge management failures are: 1 . They were not prepared - They should always know and be prepared when bad weather is approaching. The area experienced natural disasters before - twelve inches of snow (which is a blizzard in Alabama), hurricane Opal and a Tornado. 2. Did not act timely - Mr. Foshee received the call at 11:00 p.m.on Thursday night, 2/1/1996 and did not call for help until 3:00 a.m. on 2/2/1996. Management waited hours before calling for help. It was not until the third day of the crisis that he actually came up with a plan. 3. Management had no crisis management skills - The storm created a big problem for Mr. Foshee and going from 92 employees to 527 became overwhelming for Mr. Foshee to handle. The style of management structure in place did not work with the recovery efforts. He did not know how to go about organizing a restoration plan with the organizational structure employed by Cullman. What should be the top 3-5 priority actions for Cullman Electric in the next 2-3 days?
