Problem Solution: M-Core
Everyone involved in the M-Core scenario displayed avoidances in their decision-making process. Time is of the essence for M-Core to build this facility in order to compete with their competition.

Additionally the leaders of the organization need to look at the conflict resolution structure and communication mediums used in order to resolve the issues that M-Core is currently facing.
