Ajay was thinking deeply about a problem that his organisation a business consulting company faced, globalisation has affected his company like other companies. Despite the downturn, the current revenues remained healthy. However, Ajay knew it was inevitable that the company could not do business the same way. The complexity of managing the business has increased with time. Consultants were under pressure to deliver good and innovative solutions. The organisation with 3 levels. The biggest challenge for Ajay was to have consultants with latest knowledge who would also earn revenues. Getting additional business was a challenge as all the consultants were busy and it was very difficult to hire new consultants.    

1.decrease time spent on client interaction and increase time spent for generating solutions

2. increase support staff to help consultants to remain updated

3. decrease the number of simultaneous projects handled by consultants

4. make it compulsory for consultants to work on inter-industry and inter-domain problems

5. recruit more consultants   

After Ajay implemented some of the steps mentioned above, consultants wanted to renegotiate their contract with the organisation. It seems that the organisation had never mentioned that consultants have to work across industries and domains. Some of the old consultants were reluctant to change their ways, while many of the younger consultants were willing to follow Ajay’s advice.

Which of the following decisions can be taken by Ajay to handle this situation?

(a)  retrench old consultants and recruit young consultants

(b) pressurise non-conformists by giving preferential treatment to the conformists

(c) do nothing and wait for a right solution to emerge, as with time resistance would lie down

(d) discuss the issue in an open house and let solutions emerge democratically
