For example if you select an industrial marketing company, which has facilities for manufacturing BOPP tapes, strapping machines and steel strapping. Obviously each one of the units forms a responsibility center.
    3. You may select each one of these as responsibility centers but it would be better to use examples from different types of responsibility centers. For instance, the industrial marketing company would also have responsibility centers for marketing, human resources and finance. You may select steel strapping, finance and administration. This would give variety and your speech would be received well.
    4. These responsibility centers interact for functional reasons, interdependence and support. Continuing with the above example, steel strapping needs personnel, marketing needs finance and strapping machines need to match the plastic strap produced. Similarly there may be conflicts, competitions and criticisms across centers.
