By organizing into teams, Lindholm expects to be able to eliminate three mid-level managers, each earning $82,000 a year. It also expects to hire two additional entry-level employees, to be paid about $25,000 a year each. If the cost of the reorganization itself is $75,000, how much can the company expect to save after two years?
  • 42. Assessing Computer Skills
