You have initially made decision to side with executive director of research and development, and you have subsequently hired recruiters who are having great deal of success recruiting and selecting scientists. Dilemma is that these same recruiters, who now represent bulk of recruitment staff, are somewhat deficient in recruiting and selecting required sales personnel. Problem is that you perhaps must have split difference and hired more sales-oriented recruiters, but you failed to do this.
You may do either of the following:
A. Assign extra funds in budget for additional, sales-oriented recruiters.
B. Convince executive director of sales that you in fact value his opinion and request that he and his staff train, mentor, and further enlighten existing recruitment staff so that they are prepared to recruit and select suitable sales personnel.
As part of mapping and analyzing the situation, you must do the following:
- Brainstorm for each step of recruitment and selection strategy.
- Recognize and address the key issues pertaining to conflict and conflict resolution.
- Clearly display your capacity to effectively deal with conflict.
- Give real-life solutions and more than just theoretical considerations in relation to diplomacy and negotiation.
- describe criteria for success for project. How will you weigh the success of this project?
- Give solutions which display critical and innovative thinking.
- Comment on others' analyses of same situation.
