Job Description

NOTE FOR VOICE TALENT: Need authentic FRENCH ACCENT. Recordings will be used during an exercise in which project teams from a fictitious company called "OilCo" are negotiating an environmental permit.

In the course of their negotiations, they encounter several issues that will require them to revise their business strategies along the way. These "issues" will be presented to the participants in the form of "voicemail messages," which is where you come in.

Essentially, the exercise tests the participants' ability to respond effectively to unanticipated changes in circumstances. Script is below.


"This Dennis Beauchamp. Listen, we’ve got a few problems down here at Port City that I wanted to let you know about. Nothing to worry about, but I thought you should know. I’m at the refinery site and you can probably hear the picketers out here. They’re from the IWC and they are making a lot of noise. But that’s not the problem. We can handle them. The problem is about the pipe for the gas line – the custom pipe from Malaga Construction Co. in Spain. It’s at customs, but it is stuck there. The customs officer has found a discrepancy between the shipping documents and the pipe. If he was a Christian Democrat, we could deal with this without involving you. But he’s not. Claims that apparently one of the serial numbers on the paperwork is wrong. So he says we will need to pay a processing fee to 'reprocess' the get the idea. And he’s talking about a lot of money. I don’t want to say any more on the answering machine. But for a payment of this size I need to get your OK. Give me a call."

"Guys, I guess you heard. Christian Democrats are out, and Socialists are in. You probably know what that means for business. For the West Land Oil Company. For PNOC and OilCo. For the project. It’s bad…really bad…(sigh)…oh, and they are probably going to want to change the project. And not for the better. I don’t envy you right now. I am leaving the company. I don’t know who you’ll be dealing with. I guess they’ll contact you when the new guy--new person--is in place. Anyway, cheers fellas."
