The “Identifying and managing troubled projects” article from Federal Computer Week is accurate. I became known for a time as the “failing project rescue specialist”. I go into more detail in my presentation “Rescuing Failing Projects“. The key is truly managing stake holder expectations.
We have found that using Rofori for project team communications inherently keeps the project team members informed enabling the Project Manager to effectively communicate with the stake holders.
Please let me know what you think.
