Frank: We have been asked to create a new training program for our new-hire machine operators. Before we do that I want to get your input. Is it necessary and if so, what should be included? All suggestions and opinions are welcome. Jane, you’re most familiar with the current program. What do you think?
Jane: I think what we have is fine. There is no need to spend time and money reinventing the wheel.
Fred: Come on, Jane, you were just complaining about the training material last week! Let’s change it!
得了，Jane， 你上周还抱怨培训材料有问题! 让我们改改吧.
Jane: My complaints are small ones, Fred. Creating a new program takes a lot of effort believe me…I created the one we use now.
Fred: You mean you were complaining about your own material? I didn’t know that. When did you hire on here anyway?
Frank: Wait a minute here. Let’s not get off track and discuss everyone’s job history. Let’s stick to the discussion at hand. Do we need another training program or not?
Sarah: I agree with Jane. The current program isn’t perfect, but it’s good enough.
Frank: Do you agree, Fred?
Fred: Well if it’s ok with Jane, it’s ok with me.
Frank: All right then, it’s agreed. We stick with the current system even though it’s lousy.
Jane: Hey! I didn’t say it was lousy!
Frank: Just kidding, Jane. So let me summarize. We discussed the possibility of creating a new training program but decided the efforts to create a new program outweigh the benefits, as the current program is fairly good. Is that correct?
Jane, Fred, Sarah: Correct!
Frank: Great, Thanks for your input, guys. I’ll talk to the CEO tomorrow and see how he reacts.
