Taking Over the Loser Project

Posted by iammarchhare on 27 August 2009

In case you missed the comment, The Corporate Sleuth over at the Survive and Thrive in the Corporate World blog posted “Myth: Loser Projects are for Losers“.  The author makes a decent case that the “black hole” projects give you a chance to showcase your PM skills.

Yet, the main issue I see is that you usually don’t get a whole lot of choice in the matter.  It tends to be do or die, and sometimes you just pull the short straw.  What I recommend in any event, on any project, good or bad, is to do your best.  Like my father used to say, “If you did your best, then no one can claim you didn’t try.”
