This week you have focused upon strategic implementation. Part of this strategy involves golden handcuffs, golden parachutes, and cash bonuses. Read the article, Top Global Strategist, in Exhibit 10.13 about how Carol Bartz, former CEO, Yahoo!, replaced Jerry Yang due to crisis within the company.

Take on the role of one of Yahoo!’s stockholders. What is your evaluation of this very attractive offer from the company to Ms. Bartz? Is this very favorable package fair to Ms. Bartz, the company, and stockholders? Why or why not?
