The SocGen Kerviel teaching case is out

SocGen logoWe are happy to announce the registration of the second teaching case developed by the Baillet Latour Chair on Error Management: “Confronting Organizational Errors: Daniel Bouton and the Kerviel Affair at Société Générale”.

We investigated the story of the largest rogue trading scandal at the time and uncovered how CEO managed to save the bank at a time of unprecedented market turmoil and against strong headwinds from the government and the media. Under the supervision of Prof. Paul Verdin, authors Dr. Vincent Giolito and Maikel Zagbour, a graduate student at the time, we relied on a series of interviews with people directly involved, and public sources.

The case is now available at The Case Centre under the reference 317-0364-1 (go)

Here is the abstract:

With the backdrop of the largest rogue trading scandal at the time, the key objective of the ‘Daniel Bouton and the Kerviel Affair at Societe Generale’ case is to challenge MBA and Executive education classes in Strategy, leadership or Finance on the importance of strategic errors and more specifically the management of strategic errors.

You can naturally find a teaching note at The Case Centre. Please reach out to us for additional information via our contact page.
