From the Paper:

"More and more, employees are frustrated that they lack a voice in the future development of the JRT. The real problem is not a lack of company growth, but opportunities to personally expand and develop the stake that individual persons may feel they have in the JRT. One possible formal approach is a philosophical shift in the way the company operates, namely to adopt a system of participatory management, whereby the designated managers and members of the staff who are affected by managerial decisions "are actively sought to provide observations, analysis, suggestions and recommendations in the executive decision making process," concerning everything from suggestions to deal with temperature fluctuations during the night or pest problems, as well what types of benefits employees are seeking to make their work and JRT worth their while. (Bartle, 2007, "Participatory Management") Sometimes the members of the staff who deal with the worst problems on a daily basis generate the most effective solutions rather than the most sophisticated researchers and data-crunchers."
