Within the materials department, the stores personnel feel alienated. The organizational members feel frustrated and powerless as they move from one crisis to another. The consultants who are invited to conduct a study present some facts as also some opinions and feelings of the relevant organizational actors. A task force of three members is constituted by the Chairman and Managing Director of the company to examine the report submitted by the consultants and suggest steps to improve the mutual functioning of the materials and user departments.
