LSBM302 AB1 Case Study Allied Irish Banks E-Risk
On February 6, 2002, Allied Irish Banks - Ireland's second-biggest bank - revealed that it was investigating an apparent currency fraud at its Baltimore-based subsidiary, Allfirst, perpetrated by a trader named John Rusnak. It soon became clear that the scale and nature of the losses would make the AIB/Allfirst story one of the biggest 'rogue trader' scandals since Nick Leeson brought down Barings bank in 1995.
LSBM302 AB1 AIB Case 2002 Excerpt NYU,
This is a short story of failures. It is rather a chilling story of how a single person, under the most common work circumstances, can lose $750 millions! And he does so, by bullying his subordinates, intimidating his colleagues, threatening his supervisors, bribing his counter-parties, forging documents, falsifying the data, and betting more and more after having lost the most. A perfect example of "escalation of commitment". A fantastic case of complacence over compliance. This is only the first reaction: Sensationalism ends here. The core of the case is a clear reflection of:

Research Evidence | Evidence Based Research | Evidence Definition
This paper was written by DFID Research and Evidence Division Staff, with help and advice from Graeme Ramshaw of IDS and from the directors and staff of the four Research centres.
Disclaimer: This synthesis presents some key findings of DFID-funded research and the resulting policy recommendations of the researchers: it does not necessarily reflect DFID policy.

Evidence shows that in order to deliver sustainable international development we must be able to understand and work with its politics. Governance describes the way countries and societies manage their affairs politically and the way power and authority are exercised. For the poorest and most vulnerable, the difference that good, or particularly bad, governance, makes to their lives is profound: the inability of government institutions to prevent conflict, provide basic security, or basic services can have life-or-death consequences; lack of opportunity can prevent generations of poor families from lifting themselves out of poverty; and the inability to grow economically and collect taxes can keep countries trapped in a cycle of aid-dependency. Understanding governance, therefore, is central to achieving development and ending conflict. During the 1990s donors came to realise that development required better ‘governance’, and DFID recognised early on the need to work with the research community to identify ways of improving governance for better development outcomes.
Leadership Role Business | Leadership Definition | Leadership Skills
Today, most organizations do not function the same way as they did ten or maybe twenty years back. Today, most organizations feel the need to be responsive and flexible to the changing marketplace as well as the global economic environment. To be responsive to the marketplace, an organization needs to undergo timely changes or transformations. For the smooth transformation or change within any organization, it is important to hand over the responsibility to a reliable leader as leaders play a critical role in the success of any transformational program. If the leader does not have the ability to display result-oriented behavior or action during the crucial phase when the organization is witnessing a change, then he/she may cause a great deal of wastage of energy, money and time and will also create an additional burden on the company’s employees.(Jacobs, 1996)More info →
