The BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg said: The BP board is deeply saddened to lose a CEO whose success over some three years in driving the performance of the company was so widely and deservedly admired (BP CEO, 2010, para. 2). The tragedy of the Macondo well explosion and subsequent environmental damage has been a watershed incident. BP remains a strong business with fine assets, excellent people and a vital role to play in meeting the worlds energy needs. But it will be a different company going forward, requiring fresh leadership supported by robust governance and a very engaged board (para. 3).
No single factor caused the Macondo well tragedy. Rather, a sequence of failures involving a number of different parties led to the explosion and fire which killed [eleven] people and caused widespread pollution in the Gulf of Mexico [on April 20, 2010] (BP Releases Report, 2010, para. 1).
A report released by BP [on September 8, 2010] concludes that decisions made by multiple companies and work teams contributed to the accident which it says arose from a complex and interlinked series of mechanical failures, human judgments, engineering design, operational implementation and team interfaces (BP Releases Report, 2010, para 2).
CEO Tony Hayward was criticized on how his slow-to-react behavior culminated in one of the greatest environmental disasters in the new millennium. Lets go back in time and imagine the BP Board of Directors hired you as an Executive.
Coach to partner with Mr. Hayward to take appropriate actions in a timely manner to resolve the Macondo tragedy effectively. PLEASE conduct some background research to better understand the incident and best serve Mr. Hayward, the Board of Directors, the company, the environment, and the communities affected.
PLEASE goo to the BP website (www.bp.com) and choose BP Global, then Gulf of Mexico response, and lastly, BP internal investigation.
