The antagonisms among the learn scientists and the railway engineers have been the most damaging of all. the following have been subcultures that clashed on nearly every little thing possible: values, attitudes (particularly in regards to the top use of resources), and perceptions of function, prestige and serve as: In perform the AFT venture workforce chanced on themselves in a truly tricky place.
