At Al-Raheem Inc., the fiscal reports showed a considerable decline in productivity and profits. It was alarming for the higher management, so the CEO called the meeting of the managers of various departments including HR, Procurement, Marketing, Production, and Finance. In the meeting, it was revealed that there exists inter-departmental conflict(s) and each department was blaming others for the crisis. The first meeting ended in a heated exchange of words and blame game. The CEO asked the managers to compile a comprehensive report of their departments and present them in the next meeting. The reports from the departments suggested that they are fighting for more organizational resources to run their affairs.
Point of Discussion:
Being a student of management, you are required to suggest two decisional roles (Mintzberg’s Managerial Roles) suitable for the CEO to adopt in this situation. Also give two justifications for each role to resolve this issue.
