From S. K. Grinnell and H. P. Apple (“When Two Bosses Are Better Than One,” Machine Design, January 1975, pp. 84–87):

● People trained in single-line-of-command organizations find it hard to serve more than one boss.

● People may give lip service to teamwork, but not really know how to develop and maintain a good working team.

● Project and functional managers sometimes tend to compete rather than cooperate with each other. ● Individuals must learn to do more “managing” of themselves.

The authors identify the above four major problems associated with staffing. Discuss each problem and identify the type of individual most likely to be involved (i.e., engineer, contract administrator, cost accountant, etc.) and in which organizational form this problem would be most apt to occur.
