      Conflict is part of the reality we find in all organizations, regardless of their dimension or activity area. It appears as a consequence of human interaction within organizational processes and it can significantly influence the way of functioning and the obtained results.
      The limited organizational resources, the differences of opinion, different value systems, and different behaviors can easily create animosity among a collectivity and which, in time, can generate conflicts of larger or smaller impact.
      Conflict has its own dynamic that has a variety of sources. Failing to identify those sources and come up with a viable solution, can lead to the spreading of the conflict which will involve more and more organizational resources.
