Post an initial discussion in answer to the following forum discussion question. Post your initial discussion by Thursday at 11:55pm CT. Forum posts must be at least 250 words and include one citation from an external source other than your textbook (1) Imagine a situation of conflict between you and your boss.

The department that I work in paints aluminum and things like raw material delivery and weather can affect our run time and the quality of a product Never the less just recently we where running this product and I was asked to stop the run so that way we could take a group photo for a very good cause. My department went five years without an injury. Though this is a great achievement I think that the timing and the sense of urgency was a bit inflated and at a bad time. I expressed that we don’t not want to stop the production run and offered alternative solutions.
