Job Description

NOTE FOR VOICE TALENT: These 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 audio format, 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 is BBC Radio One. The continuing political upheaval in the Petrolean state of West Land appears to be claiming some new victims at this hour. The Acme Copper Company, long reviled by leftists and unions in Petrolea, has been told by the government that it is being charged with 7 separate violations of health and safety laws. It has been further warned that it must find a way to transport copper from its West Land mines without traversing the Tiko Nature Preserve, and must do so within the next six months. While the West Land environmental law does prohibit industrial activity within the park, Acme’s rail operations predate the law, and had been grandfathered by the West Land Environmental Commission and the West Land courts more than a year ago.

After these announcements this morning, the government then turned its sights on OilCo, announcing that it is revoking the comprehensive environmental permit it issued to OilCo more than a year ago. The permit covers ongoing development at the West Land oil field site, as well as construction of two pipelines, and the development of natural gas and oil terminal facilities at Port City. Much of that work is already well under way. There is no word today on whether this means the death of the OilCo project, or merely that the project will have to be changed.

Acme Copper prices fell sharply on the London and New York stock markets on today’s news, but OilCo stock prices remained unchanged, as investors took a wait-and-see attitude to the government’s announcement. We will have more on this story as it develops here on BBC Radio One."
