A Day in the Life of a Typical American White Collar Worker
Situation 20 Mr. Barnes' Office-1 在Barnes先生的办公室
(James knocks on Mr. Barnes' door and enters his office.)
James: You asked for me, sir?
Mr. Barnes: Ah, Goddard. Good, come right in. Listen, I want to ask your opinion about a few things. First, let me tell you again how pleased I am at the way you handled the Wang account. As you know this is a huge account and it's going to require its own management team.
James: Thank you, sir.
Mr. Barnes: Wang computers wants us to not only develop a new set of software for the new operating system we are designing for them, but they also wants us to develop new marketing strategies for this system. Something similar to what Apple did with their new line of Macintosh computers. That was a brilliant marketing idea to build the processor right into the monitor. And you know how successful they were in developing great advertising for their new products.
James: Yes sir. Apple was able to regain their share of the market with the combination of a great product and good advertising.
Mr. Barnes: Well, Goddard. I need the team that can do the same thing for us and Wang computers. I am thinking of making you the man in charge of putting this team together and managing it. Do you think you could handle an assignment like that?
