## DECISION MAKING SKILL Option A Option B Option C Option D Answer

Mr John Doe, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Tata Steel Ltd., had just been visited by several other directors of the company. The directors were upset with recent actions of the company president, Mr
Aman Mehta. They demanded that the board consider firing the president.
Mr Mehta, recently appointed as president, had undertaken to solve some of the management-employees problems by dealing directly with the individuals, as often as possible. The company did not have a
history of strikes or any other form of collective action and was considered to have good work culture. However, Mr Mehta felt that by dealing directly with individuals, he could portray the management’s
concern for the employees. An important initiative of Mr Mehta was to negotiate wages of the supervisors with each supervisor. In these negotiation meetings, he would not involve anyone else, including the
Personnel Department which reported to him, so as to take an unbiased decision. After negotiation, a wage contract would be drawn up for each supervisor. This, he felt, would recognize and reward the
better performers. Mr Mehta successfully implemented the process for most of the supervisors, except those working in night shift with that of supervisors of the day shift.
For several days Praveen Kumar, a night shift supervisor, had been trying to seek an appointment with Mr Mehta about his wages. He was disgruntled, not only over his failure to see the president but also
over the lack of discussions about his wage contract prior to its being affected. As a family man with six dependents, he felt his weekly wage should be higher than that granted to him.
Last Thursday afternoon Praveen Kumar stopped by the president’s office and tried to see him. Mr.Mehta’s secretary refused his request on the grounds that Mr Mehta was busy. Infuriated, Praveen Kumar
stormed into the president’s office and confronted the president. Startled, Mr Mehta stood up and told Praveen Kumar to get out of his office and express his grievance through an official channel. Praveen
Kumar took a swing at the president, who in turn punched Praveen Kumar on the jaw and knocked him unconscious.

The most important causal factor for this entire episode could be: Trying to follow a Inconsistent dealings of Paternalistic approach Inadequate standards for
