In the context where I work the most of the decisions are made by the top-down companies.
As a coordinator I have to check that they are applied by workers.
Decisions regarding organisation of the activities within my department are shared with my collaborators. I think that the involvment of the collaborators in the decisions in certain areas is fundamental to find out better solutions

Hi there!
I think there is something wrong with the task 2.
I search for the others 4 questions but i can't find them and when i click on finish, it says that there are 4 unanswered questions.
i can't understand what is going on!

Hello Andres

Please see my response to JaskaranKalra just below. The task works, it's just that you have to be careful when you move the answers into the boxes. There are two answers in each box and when you move the second answer into the box, you must click or press on the small hand inside the box. If you don't do that, your first answer moves back to the top of the task.

It's quite easy to do but a little difficult to explain, so if you need me to explain it in more detail to you, please let us know.

All the best

There is a problem with task 2.
I am able to see only 4 options but when i click on finish button, it shows that i have completed only 4 options out of 8. I have also tried to scroll but there are no further options to see.
Thanks.

Hello JaskaranKalra

I'm sorry to hear that you've had a difficult time with this task.

I've just tried task 2 and it worked for me. Sometimes people find this kind of task difficult to complete because the words do not remain in the box where they put them. To avoid this, you have to always click or press on the small white hand (on the right side of each word or phrase) to both pick it up and leave it in the correct box.

It might also be a good idea to try viewing the page in another browser or on another device.

I hope that helps you, but please let us know if you still can't get it to work.

All the best

Where I work, there is a process to make a decisions, wich implies votting for the areas involved.

I work in a highly centralized organization. So the main decisions come directly from the headquarters.

I made decisions usually in the working place through the structured way & discussed with my team members.

Hi!
I have a problem in task 2 when I should match more than option to one group I can only add one answer! What should I do?

Hello Eman Omar
What you have to do is always move the words by clicking or pressing on the small white hands in the top right corner of the word boxes. For example, if you already moved 'I agree with you on that point' into the 'Agreeing' box and you want to move 'That's right' to the box, you must click on the small hand in the top corner of the 'That's right' box and then you must click on the small hand in the top corner of the 'I agree with you on that point' box. Then it should move there.
It sounds difficult but is quite easy once you see how it works. Please let us know if you have any more trouble with this, and sorry for the inconvenience!
All the best
