dc.description.abstractThe teaching case discusses a number of organizational challenges faced by a German vegetable producer. Two business consultants were hired to assist and to explore the situation in the new production facility at Peppers & More. While the CEO assumed the employees were not motivated, the consultants uncovered that various employees' behavior, as well as a structural problem contributed to the tense situation in the production facility. During the period of analysis, it becomes apparent that there is a communication problem between the production manager and the foremen. The setup of the job rotation system and conflicts between two foremen caused further irritation at the facility. At the end of each consulting day, the consultants and the readers have to link the challenges to motivation theory and provide recommendations how Peppers & More can cope with these challenges.en
