competition in the field. Usually, there have been more orders than what the company could supply However the scenario changed quickly because of the entry of two new competitors in the field with foreign technological collaboration. For the first time, the company faced a problem in marketing its products with a usual profit margin. Sensing into the likely problem, the Chief Executive appointed

Mr. Arvind Kumar as General Manager to direct the operations of industrial machinery division. Mr. Kumar has a similar assignment abroad before coming back to India.

However, he emphasized that the company lacked. an integrated planning system while members of the Board of Directors insisted on introducing this in several meetings both formally and informally.

Therefore, to reduce the cost, it was essential to automate production lines by installing new equipment.

Director of Research and Development did not have any specific problem and, therefore, did not indicate for any change. However, a principal scientist in R&D indicated on one day that the Director of R&D, though very nice in his approach, did not emphasis short-term research projects which could easily increase production efficiency to the extent of atleast 20 per cent within a very short period, Moreover, such projects did not involve any major capital outlay.

Mr. Kumar got himself convinced about the management process going on in the division and the type of problems being faced.
