Noriko: Have you had a chance to look over Russ’s project?
Walt: Yeah, I took a look at it yesterday. If you have a couple of minutes, I can give you my two cents.
Noriko: Sure. Shoot.
Walt: Well, it’s not what I envisioned when we gave him the charge to come up with a new design for the brochure. The cover isn’t bad, but I’m not crazy about the rest of it.
Noriko: Why? What don’t you like?
Walt: Well, I think Russ is off the mark to feature our older products, rather than our new ones. When I saw what he had come up with, I thought he was out in left field. We told him to focus on the latest products, didn’t we?
Noriko: Yes, we did tell him that. I haven’t had a chance to look at the brochure closely myself, but I plan to this afternoon. So you think it needs work, huh? A lot of work?
Walt: Let’s just say that there’s a lot of room for improvement. I’d be happy to meet with him to give him my comments, if you think that would help.
Noriko: Why don’t you hold off until I’ve had a chance to go over the brochure this afternoon. I’ll set up a meeting for tomorrow and we can both give him some feedback on how to proceed.
Walt: That’s okay with me. Thanks for taking the reins on this.
Noriko: It’s no big deal. I’ll let you know later today about that meeting.
