Case 5 - Magrec, Inc.

1. I would let a day pass and then request another meeting with Dinah indicating a sincere desire to work through the matter and the need to come to an understanding and agreement of how to work together and with the team moving forward. At that meeting, I would start off and thank Dinah for bringing the Partco matter to my attention. I would communicate with Dinah that I respect her strong feelings and beliefs behind her actions regarding the Partco matter but indicate that if she felt that strongly about the action step I planned to take, that she should have spoken again with me or another manager within our company instead of contacting the customer direct.

2. I believe Dinah was right to believe that it was unethical to not let the customer know about the change in life span of the product; however, I disagree with her calling the customer directly. I believe she should have either tried to get her manager to take action on her request or go to another manager in the company.

If I were Dinah, after talking to my manager and getting a response that he/she was not going to do something about the matter, I would have gone to another manager in the company regarding the issue. This would have allowed them to come up with a strategy to communicate the error to the
