CATALYST B: PHASE II
Michael Pritchard, Western Michigan University
You have now had more time to do research on catalyst B. After several weeks your research quite decisively indicates that, contrary to the expectations of Alex and the other more experienced engineers in your unit, catalyst B really would have been, far and away, the better choice. Meanwhile, Larom has already invested a great deal of money in catalyst A. What do you do now?
1. Nothing. Keep the data to yourself and try to avoid making trouble.
2. Tell Alex, and let him decide what, if anything, to do about it.
3. Go over Alex's head, and tell his superiors that you should have
refused to submit the report as requested.
