SSC Case Study

Not rated yet. Be the first who rates this item!

I am part of a team at SSC developing software for a client working with an independent vendor called InTech (ITC). InTech has created a module that is to be integrated with my team's software, however, I discovered that their software has a glitch that will negatively impact our client. My team-members immediately shuts my idea down because our project manager is working on few other projects that are over budget and behind schedule. I feel pressure to report the glitch directly to the senior VP but there have been similar situations in the past where those who reported bad news have faced negative consequences. I love working for SSC but I also care about my company and its reputation. I am not sure what to do. Should I report the glitch to Senior VP?

D: Report the bug in vendor's module to my senior VP (my project manager's boss)
D': Not report the bug to my senior VP
B: ensure my actions help build company's reputation
C: ensure good rapport with my team and project manager
A: e an effective employee OR have a successful career with SSC

In order to e an effective employee OR have a successful career with SSC I must ensure my actions help build company's reputation and in order to ensure my actions help build company's reputation I must Report the bug in vendor's module to my senior VP (my project manager's boss). But, in order to e an effective employee OR have a successful career with SSC I must also ensure good rapport with my team and project manager and in order to ensure good rapport with my team and project manager I must Not report the bug to my senior VP. I can't both Report the bug in vendor's module to my senior VP (my project manager's boss) and Not report the bug to my senior VP.
