Institutional Conflict

Develop a 3-4-page report on how conflict can affect an organization. Describe reasons for conflict and explain the role of both functional and dysfunctional conflict in institutional change. Recommend strategies for resolving both functional and dysfunctional conflict.

Conflict is inevitable. As an employee of any institution, you will encounter conflict. Despite your best efforts, conflict will occur.

Suppose you work in an organization that seems to experience a great deal of conflict between individuals and between departments. The director of your department has asked you to draft a report he can use to brief his colleagues in executive leadership on institutional conflict and how it can affect an organization. Part of the report needs to offer recommendations on how to resolve conflict.
