Lewis is running late to work. His children missed the bus and he had to drive them to school, thus adding to his commute. On his way in, he hits every red light, spills coffee on his lap and realizes he has forgotten to take out the trash. When Lewis finally gets to his desk, his manager Carey calls him in for an impromptu meeting.  Carey needs Lewis’s team to repackage a shipment of ABC tools that was due to be delivered yesterday. Carey was informed this morning that original ABC tool order was for 500 parts, but the invoice incorrectly stated 5,000. As a result, the warehouse is overstocked, and the order was incorrectly packed. This also means that the shipment will likely arrive late. Due to several team errors over the last six months, Carey is under a lot of scrutiny from her leadership. Carey needs to ensure this problem is taken care of immediately and accurately.
