Bad Times at Quality ShoeStudentAxia College of University of PhoenixMGT 210 Supervision and LeadershipInstructorDate Bad Times at Quality ShoeQ.1 - What do you think of Mack's approach to solving his problem?Cutting 20% of the workforce is not an easy decision for Mack to take. I like his idea to have the group discussion about the issue and give the group a chance to come up with a solution. However, Mack should provide some general guidelines considering that the decision has to be taken quickly. "Groups that are not knowledgeable or organized will usually not make good decisions" (Rue & Byars, 2004, p. 27). Q.2 - How would you go about the task if you were Ralph?I would explain to the group of the financial difficulties the company is going through; cuts are necessary in order to reduce the company's expenses. I would suggest to the group that a sacrifice in terms of hours worked is required for each employee at this time. By reducing the number of hours for each employee, Ralph would be able not only to reduce labor costs but also to keep all the employees. I would not leave up to the group to decide if the layoff should be done based on seniority
