Shangri-La Hotels, Chinese Version Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

In November 2006, the newly appointed chief operating officer of Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, Symon Bridle, was thinking about the solutions for the numerous organizational problems which created obstacles regarding Shangri-La's rapid expansion strategy.
