//while writing this paper, we will focus mainly on the process that the group follows while they are engaged in any type of conflicts and what are the possible outcomes to come out from that conflict, highlighting the points that have been given in the paper by adopting the problem solving technique.//

It is any situation in which two or more persons feel themselves in opposition to each other. Conflicts in an organization may occur between employee and employee, employer and employer and employee and employer. There are many types of conflicts that can occur in the organization (About Conflict, n.d.).

Secondly, the management will look into the possible outcomes by suggesting suitable measures. Thirdly, the group members will try to implement those outcomes in their own methods. Fourthly, the desired performance would be checked with the actual performance. Fifthly, if there are any deviations in the path, then it would be rectified by following different techniques.
