dc.description.abstractThis research paper will describe what a Mexican drug cartel is and what strategies they emphasize. I will focus on three primary strategies that enable cartels to be so successful. Specifically, cartels engage in practices to maintain a favorable business environment, motivate organizational members, and effectively recruit new organizational members. They accomplish these overarching strategic imperatives through a variety of means, namely bribery, violence and fear, shared organizational identity, expressing outcomes for undesired behavior, monetary compensation, and recruitment of like-minded organizational members. Cisco Systems, a technology company, will serve as an example of a company that also emphasizes these three strategic imperatives. Cisco’s business practices allow the company to achieve the three imperatives. Cisco demonstrates that companies do not need to rely on illegal practices in order to accomplish the three imperatives. Other legitimate companies can be successful by engaging in business practices that prioritize the three imperatives.
