The Takeover

Employees of a struggling company stage a corporate mutiny to save their jobs. Can they really do better than the boss?

Think you’ve got what it takes to be in charge? In The Takeover, employees of a struggling company think they can perform more effectively than their bosses, and plan to rescue the enterprise, and their jobs, by leading an all-out corporate occupation. As desperate executives give up control for two weeks, a business mentor arrives to guide the staff as they attempt to identify the company’s problems, build a sound strategy and implement solutions – all in a bid to get the business back on track. With their livelihoods at stake, how will the employees cope with the pressures of managing everything from budgets to clashing personalities? After two weeks, the bosses return and are presented with the results – will this be a story of triumph, or is this business headed straight for bankruptcy?
