Abstract: The paper aims to analyses the types of conflicts that generally occur during the lifecycle of a project. Particularly if the project belongs to the field of Information Technology where computation plays the indistinguishable part throughout the lifecycle, conflicts are unavoidable; rather they can be resolved with a good mindset and good managerial skills. All people can benefit, both personally and professionally, from learning conflict management skills. Typically we respond to conflict by using one of five modes: Compromising, Collaborating, Competing, Avoiding, Accommodating. The study examined the intergroup conflict between R&D managers and non – managers in four corporate companies, as well as the relationship between each of the five conflict-handling modes: competition, accommodation, sharing, collaboration, and avoidance, with the following variables:
1) Conflict frequency
2) Job satisfaction
3) Job performance
Keywords: Assertiveness, Cooperation, TKI, Nonthreatening Confrontation, Conflict Frequencies.
