When an IT Project “Goes Red”

MIT SMR

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”.

They recommend:

  • 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!
