Green Mountain Resort and the "Problem" of Turnover

Which of the six change images discussed in the chapter can be identified in the assumptions about changing turnover that were held by: Gunter? The hospitality literature? The consultant?

B. How did these assumptions influence prescriptions for dealing with the turnover problem?

The assumptions that Gunter made and those that were reflected in the hospitality literature prevented them from re-framing the issue of high turnover. Because the conventional wisdom informed both Gunter and those experts in the field that are responsible for disseminating the conventional wisdom about the hospitality industry that high turnover is a cost of doing business in this… [END OF PREVIEW] . . .
