MidasSource has grown so fast that their traditional basic IS tools are just not sufficient to deal with the increasing complexity that comes along with the current growth trajectory of the company. After trying out several third party systems to coordinate and manage their internal activities without success, they have decided to embark on developing a very customized and encompassing IS system in-house. Despite the top managements readiness to provide all the funds required to achieve the project, the eventual output is considered a failure. This case describes the aftermath of the completion of the project and the burden of proof that lies on the shoulder of the project manager.
