Raef Conley has just been assigned his first major project. Having worked on several small projects since joining Design Prototypes Inc, 9 years ago, Raef has never taken on a major project. This is a significant opportunity for him, one that could advance his career in many ways. Although he is excited about the opportunity, he is also somewhat anxious, as while there is the potential for career advancement, he is also cognizant of the fact that failure could mean the end of his career at Design Prototypes. Raef's first task is to assemble a project team. Raef needs to assemble a team of seven individuals selected from a pool of eleven. While all of the candidates have strengths, some appear to be better suited to the project than others. Three of the candidates have political connections which could influence their selection. Another candidate has a strong personal connection to Raef. While uncertain about his actual motives, Raef has a feeling that his boss has clear preferences toward two of the candidates. The case revolves around the questions of: How does Raef weigh technical competence with personal and political considerations? Who should Raef select for the team?
