Abstract

When Roger Clements was offered the new post of manager of the Limpet Works of Prudential Paints Ltd, he felt that he could work satisfactorily with the production manager, Norman Barnes, who until then had been in charge of the works. But he soon had reason to change his opinion. As the manager of the factory said "The trouble is, Barnes came here when the firm was very small, and he''s stayed small. He''s been moved around everywhere, and now he''s roosting with you. I''m glad you''ve got the problem to solve, and not me. Still it''s what you''re paid for."
