Organization Development/ Training Department. The current structure provides no Opportunities
for cross-training, backup/support during peak periods, role expansion or coverage
during absences or vacation periods.

    vacations and provide opportunities for role expansion. The overall impact should be
    improved service and more effective utilization of resources.
