A group of your colleagues are meeting to go over the work that has been produced for FMC Green River. Prior to the meeting distribute last week's recommendations to your associates by posting them to the small group discussion board. At the actual meeting you are to examine the recommendations that your colleagues have produced. Offer your professional evaluation of at least one of your associates' work. Include, at minimum, one issue for your colleague to either consider or improve upon before he or she finalizes the analysis. Then, as a group, decide on three or four recommendations to propose to the Plant Manager. Prepare a PowerPoint presentation addressing the issues, recommendations, and supporting arguments for the recommendations. Be sure to cite your sources using APA guidelines.
