Marks: 10 Due Date: February 09, 2021
Margaret is one of the leading education consultant firms in Pakistan. The organization is divided into different working teams depending on the area of specialization. Each team works under a team lead responsible for looking after basic team chores and works as a communication bridge between higher management and team members. One of the team leaders is Miss. Angelina, who is appointed by the management to look after a specific section. But she lacks time management skills and used to do things haphazardly that always keeps the sense of urgency in the team. Several team members think that she does not have the proper skill-set to be the team lead. Due to her mismanagement, several emergencies have been created that lead to conflict or non-acceptance. Instead of overcoming the drawbacks, she sometimes behaves nasty to hide such negligence that further de-motivates the employees. Because of this nature, team members always fear missing out something important, being trapped, hopeless and unhappy. They exhibit aggression, neglecting duties, absenteeism, and lack of creativity in work. As a result, the team fails to produce a high standard that ultimately leads to the loss of the organization in terms of time, money and resources.
