Lucy: I don’t think this is going To work. This plan Calls for the new office to open by July and I think that’s too Ambitious. I don’t see how the Groundwork can be done any earlier than September.
Jeff: I understand your concern. I don’t want to Rush the opening of the new office either. But, as I see it, a lot of the preparations were made last year when we considered opening an office in Miami. Even though the site is different, a lot of the cost projections are the same.
Lucy: That may be, but remember that one of the reasons we Scrapped the Miami plan was because the budget was too big.
Jeff: That’s not how I saw it. I think the major reason we didn’t go ahead with the Miami plan was a problem with Timing. But, I know that the budget was a concern, too. As you can see, though, this plan has a lower budget than the Miami plan.
Lucy: I don’t agree. If you add in all of The extras, the budget is the same, if not higher. I think we need to Go back to the drawing board On this.
Jeff: I have to disagree. This plan is the best we’ve come up with and is workable.
Lucy: I’m afraid we just Don’t see eye to eye On this. Let’s Call a meeting with the rest of the team and see what they think.
Jeff: Okay, let’s do that.Disagreeing Politely in a Business Setting
