Fifteen years after having begun operations, the enterprise Saneamiento y Urbanización SA (SYUSA), engaged in the disposal of urban solid waste, was undergoing an acute crisis that had started at the end of the 1980s. A new general manager took over the enterprise and faced a number of problems affecting the working environment, behaviour of middle-level management, attitude of employees, who were in constant conflict, status of the enterprise and, of course, profits. Moreover, in five years the grant obtained will come to an end. And to top it all, the place used to deposit the waste will soon be full and it is not easy to find another location. Nevertheless, the general manager faced these problems courageously and he was determined to stabilise the enterprise in every area, acquire a good image and reach international competitiveness levels
