Apex Chemical Company is facing a difficult decision as to which path to invest in, compound A-115 or compound B-227. With limited resources and two divergent market paths it will be critical to invest in the correct course. After reading the case brief and applying the 5C Framework for Innovation, I believe that Apex should pursue the plastic oxidizer, Compound B-227.
