Focus on these online discussion questions using the case study

  1. When should a company build versus buy a product or service?
  2. Do you agree with the decision to build a new system? Why or why not?
  3. For the GIS Project, should the project team conduct a thorough due diligence before hiring Centaura? Why or why not?
  4. The contract type of Cost Plus was controversial. Ms. Holmes, for example, wanted a fixed cost contract, but Centaura disagreed citing the previous failure. Mr. Zhang eventually made the executive decision and agreed to the Cost Plus contract. What do you see as the pros and cons of Cost Plus?
  5. Given the past issue with the ERP vendor, what will you do differently with Centaura?
