Question # 4.1 The company’s product promised to a major customer is running late and there was intense pressure on the production team to deliver the product. The Direction of Production was eventually told by the company President to “deliver or else.” The Director therefore decided to ship the product, even though it had not gone through all its testing procedures. Members on the product team were angry by the uncertainty in the functionality and reliability of the shipped product.
