In past time, I was working as a manager of a manufacturing company, so it is a part
of my job to make decision on a daily basis to effectively run the operations of the company. I
was responsible to maintain the quality and quantity of production line through handle the
employees and make sure that employee not take leave to maintain production of the

required need for critical thinking in the workplace to achieve them.

represent the views of employees in front of them (Bowell & Kemp, 2013). It was helped

In addition, the manufacture industry needs critical thinking to survive in the
competitive market. The labor rate was large contributed into the expanses of the company.
The company ready to provide high rate of labor if they work hard and given their best for the
company as increase overall production. So, the issue is close and the company management
and employees both are happy about the decision at the same time.
