Starting out a project with a clear picture of the resources available will help waylay some of this conflict. Fourth conflict according to me is of Interpersonal Relationships. Often in these types of conflict what I have seen is that parties in conflict are not able to resolve their personal issues with each other. The personalities of the people involved in the organizational structure play an important part in conflict resolution. It is not always easy to set aside personal prejudices when entering the workplace, but it is important to recognize what those prejudices are and deal with them before conflict arises.
But many of the problems which can hamper team performance come as much from the relations between the project team and the project partner organizations as from within the team itself. Projects and project teams often start in a flurry of activity. However, as daily operational problems occupy people’s attention, it becomes increasingly difficult for the team to get access to the required skills or resources. For example, key people are busy and managers have other things on their mind and so on. One way of trying to avoid these situations in a project is to begin with a ‘goal redefinition’ exercise to clarify what is expected of the project and the project team and the implications for each partner organization.
Transformational Theory Transformational Theory is a leadership style applied where the leader act as changing agents in the organization which the leader itself want to change and transform the organization to become better. The leader also try to develop role and commitment to the employee toward the achievement of the organization goal. This leadership style rarely applied in the organization because most of the organization just want to maintain the current practice unless for the organization that started want to transform to become big organization. There are four elements of transformational leadership which are: a) Develop and communicate a strategic vision The leader develop new strategies and challenging vision toward the achievement of the organizational goal. The vision must be what we expect the organization in the future and then discuss together with the employee to give them clear image what they have to achieve with the new vision and strategies of the organization goal.
This team consists of a lean manager, two lean manufacturing engineers and lean coordinators for the different production sites. Kurtenbach decided to hire three consulting firms.

Employee relations has been defined as a HR function which is focused on interacting with the employees at all levels within the firm and resolve the issues that are faced by them at the workplace (Blyton and Turnbull, 2004). The issues faced by the employees are important to address because they negatively affect the performance of the staff members which ultimately result in low business performance (Colling and Terry, 2010). According to Herriot (2001), employee relations are concerned with preventing the issues and resolving the problems which are faced by the individual employees at the workplace and can negatively affect the work situations. It also involves advice from the supervisors or managers in order to correct poor performances of the employees (Hollinshead et. al, 2002).

3.1.2 – Dynamics between leadership and management According to John Kotter from Harvard Business School, leadership and management are both complementary as well as distinct from each other.

Leadership brings in change in the organisation. Whereas the management involves the functional aspects like planning, organising, staffing and controlling and problem-solving. Management mostly involves implementing the vision and direction provided by the leaders.

It is the stage for idea generation and the various ideas that are generated are usually subject to criticism so this criticism may lead to conflict among the members.

Team leader comes in to give vision to the group. This stage is usually difficult for people who do not like conflict.

The team sets their pace and schedule allowing the company to possibly eliminate a supervisor should it be effective and run well. There are disadvantages to this type of team as there are to every team.
