3. Give examples of two prominent crises FedEx could face in the future. What steps should the company take to prepare for these crises?
4. Suppose you are the CEO of a start-up firm in the package delivery industry. You have plenty of capital to work with, but little infrastructure and no management team in place. What strategy would you pursue and why?
