Read the case and answer the questions given at the end of the case.
PK Mills manufactures woolen clothes. Over the years, it has earned an envious reputation in the market. People associate PK  Mills with high quality woolen garments.  Most of the existing employees have joined the company long back and are nearing retirement stage.  The process of  replacing these old employees with younger ones, drawn from the nearby areas, has already begun. Recently, the quality of the garments has deteriorated considerably. Though the company employs the best material that is available, the workmanship has gone down.  Consequently, the company has lost its customers in the surrounding areas to a great extent.  The company stands, in the eyes of general public, depreciated and devalued. The production manage, in a frantic bid to recover lost ground, held several meetings with his staff but all in vain.  The problem, of course, has its roots in the production department itself.  The young workers have started resisting the bureaucratic rules and regulations vehemently.  The hatred against regimentation and  tight control is total.  The old workers, on the verge of retirement, say that conditions have changed considerably in recent years.  In the days gone, by the say, they were guided by a process of self-control in place of bureaucratic control.  Each worker did his work diligently and honestly under the old set-up.  In an attempt to restructure the organizational  set-up the managers who have been appointed afterwards brought about radical changes. Workers under the new contract, had very little freedom in the workplace.  They are expected  to bend their will to rules and regulations.  Witnessing the difference between  the two ‘cultures’ the  young workers, naturally, began to oppose the regulatory mechanism devised by  top management.  The pent-up feelings of frustration  and  resentment against management, like a gathering storm, have resulted in volcanic eruptions leading to violent arguments between young workers and foremen on the shop-floor.  In the process production has suffered, both quantitavely andquantitavely.  The production manager in an attempt to weather out the storm, is seriously thinking of bringing about a radical change in the control process that is prevailing now in the organization.
(a)    What are the core issues the case?
(b)   Do you agree with the statement “The problem, of  course, has its roots in tl-p production department itself”? Reason out your stand.
(c)    Critically evaluate the finding that old supervisors complain and new workers too resist any type of Control.
(d)   What type of control system would you suggest to the company to improve the production?
