The Conflict

Elizabeth is an architect in Cityscape and she is the main manager who appoints the jobs to different architects and divides the work into different employees under her position. Elizabeth discusses the purpose and the type of building required by the client's of the organization. As a job of an architect is to produce floor plans and various designs of the building via sketches and 3D software such as CAD and AutoCAD which requires specific skills and specialization to accomplish such duty and responsibility. An architect should be a good sketcher, business person, organizer, planner and coordinator. 

On the other hand, Charlie is the assistant architect working under Elizabeth and his responsibilities are to check the dimensions of the buildings and all the sketches required in well assembled presentation and perfect drawings. Charlie is not a well organized person although he is a very skilled person with substantial knowledge of sketching and drawing. However, the responsibility of Charlie is to organize the design and assemble all the drawings for printouts and the final assessment of the building and its design.

Elizabeth called Charlie and told him to collect all the drawings and printouts of the building for correction and adjustments to the other architect. As Charlie is not well organized person, some of the drawings were missing and were not yet completed in AutoCAD. The files of AutoCAD were not completed and the printouts were also not completed due to the late submission of work to the photocopier.

As the drawings were unfinished and they were not rendered by the architect, Elizabeth was outrage by the behavior of Charlie and was tensed about the work to be accomplished on time. However, Elizabeth threatened Charlie about the job and said that he may no longer work in the same position due to unfinished and unorganized work by him. So she informed her higher authorities about the incomplete work by Charlie and reported a complaint against Charlie. As there were many other conflicts between Elizabeth and Charlie as Elizabeth was jealous by Charlie's work and the sketches he used to make and have different creative ideas of buildings and houses.

Elizabeth wanted to have revenge with Charlie as he had more innovative ideas as compared to her while discussing different types of ideas in a team work conference. Mostly the design of the buildings is considered if the sketches and the idea of the person are more creative. If the creativity of both architects is compared, Charlie must be given more importance as he has more creative ideas. Also, Elizabeth had many historical problems with Charlie which she also mentioned in her complaint to the higher authorities to prove her point of view. Therefore, this complaint was discussed with the higher authorities by the Human resource management. The manager brought up the case forward and compared all the activities done by Charlie and Elizabeth. Elizabeth had spreaded the story in the whole organization and all the staff thought about the negativity of Charlie and what he has done may put himself in many troubles.
