Please answer this hypothetical business question

The executives were discussing the MegaCorp UAS bid.

"This bid is critical - and it's huge," said the sales VP. "I need Arthur, Beth, Charlie, and Deborah to help on it."

"You can't have Beth," replied the operations VP.

"I need Beth's expertise for the MegaCorp bid," argued the sales VP.

"I need Beth's expertise for the NatCorp delivery," replied the operations VP. "We have to deliver NatCorp before the end of the year."

"If we don't win the MegaCorp business," shouted the sales VP, "then we won't have any significant business in the future!"

"If we don't deliver NatCorp on time," shouted the operations VP, "then we won't have any business, present or future!"

Please answer the questions below:

  1. Who is right?

  2. Why?
