Hale Scheckelhoff Bus 101 Rollins Ford Pinto Case 1. What is the primary issue in this case? The primary issue is an ethical issue of the company either fixing the cars and losing money or keeping the faulty car in the market and having issues and deaths due to the poor structure of the car. 2. From the perspective of Ford (put them in the box), in the broadest sense (think perpetual analyzer), who are the stakeholder groups in this case (Owners, Customers, Employees, Suppliers, Society) and which specific stakeholders fall into each stakeholder group? The stakeholders are the owners, employees, suppliers, society, and customers. Echold is the director of safety and falls under the employee category for stakeholder. Mrs. Gray is a customer of the Ford Company and falls under the customer category. Grimshaw would fall under the society category for the stakeholder. The CEO of Ford would be considered the owner of the company. Iacocca, the vice president, is considered an employee in this case.
