Surviving an organisational implosion

“We are shocked beyond words… This new development has left us in a state of fear. We don't know what the company's fate will be. We might all just lose our jobs and in the current economic situation, we don't even have prospects of a job anywhere else.” Thus was captured a Satyam employee's quote in a regional newspaper, soon after the scandal broke in 2009. That was the first stage of grief, chronicle Priscilla Nelson and Ed Cohen in Riding the Tiger: Leading through learning in turbulent times, citing the work of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (2007).
