  • 9. Q and A 1. What kinds of situations does the Concept describe? Is this a broad or narrow group of observable phenomena? 2. How can the Concept be used to predict something that has not yet been observed. If it cannot be used that way, why not? 3. Can the Concept fail? If it can, what might be an example of such a failure, if it cannot, why not?
  • 10. Success of the Concept: a case incident of Petro- Canada • The communications, Energy and paper workers union represents more than 90 percent of its unionized employees. • 1984;Established a formal labor union policy. • 1994;company and union signed a relationship objectives agreement. • Both parties used mutual gains bargaining and worked together to develop policies outside of the collective agreement. • Together with the union, the company has adopted innovative policies including pay for knowledge and work teams. This helped the company to meet the market fluctuations and competition from rivals.
