To this end, one of the problems that managers of organizations particularly; service and manufacturing organizations have faced with today is lack of trust in accurate implementation of contract specifically implied contracts. If managers tend to control the whole organization for the accurate implementation of these contracts, it would lead to extravagant costs.
