Disaster in the Gulf and Crisis on Land: Poor Stakeholder Management of Transocean Ltd.

For this presentation, McArthur will discuss the poor stakeholder management of Transocean in the wake of the 2010 oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. While BP was the owner of the oil, Transocean is the company that owned the rig and employed most of the workers. Using three aspects of the Stakeholder Theory, strategic ambiguity, evasion of responsibility, and mortification, McArthur will discuss the actions of the company. He will end the presentation by offering some future implications for companies like Transocean to adhere to in a time of crisis.
