Q. 15 – Situation:

You head a section of five people. A colleague from another part of the company who is highly regarded for successfully heading up new initiatives, is forming a working party which will tackle a key organisation issue. She has approached you as she believes that you are able to make useful contributions. Involvement in the working party could easily absorb 20% of your time over the next three months. The issue being tackled has significant medium-term benefits for the whole company, although it will have little immediate impact on the aims and working practices of your particular section. The timing is particularly bad for you and your team in terms of current workload.

Rate the following responses to your colleague’s request:

A. Thank your colleague but politely decline the offer of direct involvement by explaining your section’s workload situation.

Ans. Options: Highly Undesirable / Undesirable / Slightly Undesirable / Slightly Desirable / Desirable / Highly Desirable

ANS.

B. State that you do not see much advantage in getting involved as the issue has no significance for your section.

Ans. Options: Highly Undesirable / Undesirable / Slightly Undesirable / Slightly Desirable / Desirable / Highly Desirable

ANS.

C. Agree in principle to be involved but do not commit yourself to any specific dates, etc.

Ans. Options: Highly Undesirable / Undesirable / Slightly Undesirable / Slightly Desirable / Desirable / Highly Desirable

ANS.

D. Suggest the project is delayed until you can spare some time.

Ans. Options: Highly Undesirable / Undesirable / Slightly Undesirable / Slightly Desirable / Desirable / Highly Desirable

ANS.

E. Suggest to your colleague that although you are not personally able to help, you know of another manager who possibly can contribute.

Ans. Options: Highly Undesirable / Undesirable / Slightly Undesirable / Slightly Desirable / Desirable / Highly Desirable

ANS.

F. Tell your colleague that you are working to a carefully prepared business plan and that she should not disturb this by bringing in unplanned activities.

Ans. Options: Highly Undesirable / Undesirable / Slightly Undesirable / Slightly Desirable / Desirable / Highly Desirable
