Ross Walker’s Path to Power Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

Ross Walker had come a long way. A kid of small upbringing in Marin County north of San Francisco, Walker had earned both MBA and undergraduate degrees from Stanford. He'd been picked to serve a five-year term as the youngest alumni representative on the Stanford University Board of Trustees and had a terrific job at Wolff Urban Development in the businesses he loved, hospitality and real estate. Most of all, Walker was well-known and well-enjoyed by an extremely big number of people, with an extensive network that went far beyond a great reputation as well as hospitality and real estate among administrators at Stanford and with his GSB classmates. But like all successful people, Ross Walker confronted a possible challenge.

As he moved on to bigger platforms and much more duty, as his career unfolded, he would necessarily face more intense competition. Walker had been able to develop numerous relationships by the qualities that had thus far served him so well-unbelievable generosity with his time plus guidance, modesty, hard work, self awareness, and by not being flamboyant and thus, on occasion, being underestimated by others, including rivals. If as they had in the past, those qualities would continue to serve him just as well in the future, some observers speculated.
