Your company is planning to bid on a project in an application area in which you have never worked before. You are aware that your company does not have any resources with the necessary expertise. Your management is pressurizing you to submit a bid. What should you do?
A. Refuse to do what your company management asks you to do since it violates the code of ethics and professionalism.
B. Do what your management asks you to do. Your loyalty needs to be with your company. As long as management has the confidence that the project can be done, you can go with the plan.
C. Do what your management asks you to do, but inform them that you would not like to be associated with the project since it violates the code of ethics and professionalism.
D. Explain the gaps to your management clearly and also explain that this will be a stretch assignment. You can further explain to them that it is best to reveal to the potential buyer that your company does not possess the necessary skills, but are confident of ramping up the necessary skills and delivering the project successfully, based on your company’s track record.
