I'm an operations guy, have been for years. I've managed production for the ignition assembly used in Honda Accords, Civics and CRVs and I've managed production for a host of other automotive products including springs and wire harnesses used on Toyota, Mazda, Honda, Mitsubishi, Ford, and other auto makers' cars.

I guess the question for me is; is there enough competition to avoid price-fixing and collusion? 

I think there is.  There are at least three providers of internet service in my area, so I think that's ample competition.

I just put out my new book, Project Management for the Non-Project Manager.  Every company should be running a project whether they have a PMO or not.  Sometimes they don't have the know-how, but this is the definitive toolbox for picking solid projects that have a major and positive influence on the financials of a company.
