Declaring to your whole company that the project everyone is excited about is in trouble can be demoralizing. But it’s exactly what can turn things around, says a recent article on MIT SMR – When an IT Project “Goes Red”.
- Focus on the upside of admitting a project is in trouble: You get more resources.
- Start holding daily meetings.
- Figure out what benchmarks will show positive progress.
- Celebrate small successes to boost morale.
Use it to your advantage and don’t be afraid to admit that you have a problem!
