It's the middle of the semester and CGR-TMU is running behind on accomplishing the goals set in their rock plans. They decide to have an emergency E board meeting to discuss how they will close the gap between now and the end of the semester to ensure they meet their goals. Everyone begins to throw out ideas, but there seems to be a lot of confusion and no real direction on how the ideas will be executed. Two hours into the meeting with no real results, the secretary asks The president to help intervene and guide the team to make solid decisions and determine next steps. The president says "I don't know what you want me to say. You all can just do whatever you want and let me know. I'm tired and need to go study". The meeting adjourns and the e-board still has no plan on how to meet their goals by the end of the semester.
