Chamberlain has hands full of work when he starts a new week on Monday. But, at the end of that day, when the performance of Chamberlains is analyzed from an overall perspective with particular focus on long-term targets, it falls short of the expected levels. That is, over the weekend, Chamberlain had formulated a list of important long-term tasks, which he planned to accomplish in the ensuing week, by making a start on Monday. Among the important tasks was the need to find new suppliers to buy several high-cost and large quantity materials needed for conducting the shows in their theatre. The search to find new suppliers got initiated mainly to reduce the ever-increasing production costs.

The main purpose of the new procedures is to reduce overtime working and the resultant high labor expenses. The other main issue that inflates the production costs is the late buying of materials needed for the production, through high-cost fast delivery mode. So, through these new procedures, Chamberlain wants the production team to order and get the needed materials in advance, at lower rates. The other plan of Chamberlain is to provide new flexible facilities on the stage, which will have long-term use and importantly which can be modified by the designers in any way. This plan is to counter the present case of providing expensive new materials for each show. The other long-term plan, Chamberlain had in his mind is to increase the use of modular stage designs, instead of using expensive timber for constructions on stage. So, “by the time he reached the theatre, he was pleased about the approaching day and anticipated taking steps towards the resolution of these tasks” (Till)
But the moment, he entered the building of the theatre, stage manager called him and explained to him that he needs more casual labor than initially agreed due to the changes in the play, The Son of Light. So, this addition of new labor clearly affected Chamberlain's plan to reduce labor costs, providing an unfavorable start.
