Most project professionals have found themselves on a project where success looks unlikely, yet nobody does anything about it. Why is this? Flagging up that a project is heading for failure is typically a career limiting move – the messenger bringing the bad news get blamed.
This panel delivered webinar on Tuesday 6 September 2022 explored a simple approach to how we, as project professionals, can flag up the need for changes to projects (or even killing them), in a way that avoids being blamed personally.
This approach can be used in any context where stakeholders don’t want to hear changes are vital.
Getting commitment to reshaping or killing a failing project without the messenger being killed.
