The paper 'Current Conflict Situation between Tania and John" is a good example of a management case study. This report analyses discusses the current conflict situation between Tania and John and tries to set forward the easiest way of solving it. It analyses the character of each individual associated in the conflict and gives the character seen to be causing the problem. The report classifies the nature of the dispute as seen in this organization and gives the recommended actions that need to be undertaken to settle the conflict.

The report focuses mostly on the ways of solving the conflict in a way that is not biased and one that will not cause more problems to the organization. The conclusion then summarizes the whole report by giving the most appropriate way of solving the conflict. Introduction The purpose of this report is to analyse the current situation of the dispute between John and Tania and discuss the way forward in solving it. There have been reports and complains from other workers about the existence of the conflict between the two individuals (Bercovitch, 1995).

The conflict is seen to be affecting a big deal of work done where the two individuals are to work together. It also affects other workers as they are hearing of the ongoing conflict situations daily (Frickey, 2002). This can reduce their morale, as their leader is the one in the conflict. It also does not give a good company image as customers can easily hear of such a conflict and cause shame to the workers involved (Hawkins, 2008). It also affects output, as work from one employer is needed by the other and vice versa (Wai, 2012).

The fact that they are not in good terms a worker may not put in the effort to give quality output so that the colleague to handle the commodity next is the one blamed for the mess. Description and analysis of the conflict The conflict as seen between Tania and John is classified as being between man and man. This is also called character struggles between an individual and an antagonist. This kind of conflict in most cases may not be noticed by society.

It is only noticed by society at an advanced level (Mathis & Jackson, 2012). This already classifies our case scenario as an advanced level conflict. This kind of conflict in most cases is not so hostile. It mostly happens silently without any leaders of a place knowing (Bercovitch, 1995). In a working environment, it may remain calm during working hours and only affect the individuals after work. In consideration with our case, ours is a serious situation as it is very open and even involves the exchange of words. It, therefore, requires some serious attention to solve it efficiently (Frickey, 2002).

This classification is because there are two individuals in the conflict and that there is no other thing associated with the conflict (Kriesberg & Dayton, 2012). It is also classified as a heated conflict because of the case scenarios where the individuals exchanged words and even reported each other to the top management due to the poor services and low quality of products.
