Case Interview Prompt

As they pair together for a joint venture named Intelisoft, a new translation software company, Sheila Mason and Craig Shepherd find themselves in a complex transitional phase with their existing employers. Sheila Mason is a director at ATS and Craig Shepherd is a director at Nova.

Mason has questioned the potential of a conflict of interest between her new venture and her role at ATS.
