1) A roomful – they have to hold a meeting to discuss all the ramifications of the change.
2) None, they like to keep employees in the dark.

4) “We’ve formed a task-force to study the problem of why light bulbs burn out, and to figure out what, exactly, we as supervisors can do to make the bulbs work smarter, not harder.”
