re: Have you been part of a project that failed? Why do you think that happened? VIEW POST


I see your projects and raise this to a company.

The company realized its main project was failing and decided to take on a few projects requested by some clients. These project had some crazy deadlines giving them 3 months to finish (all of it in parallel and the last month was for testing).

9 out of 10 seniors voted against such deadlines but 1 hero unicorn voted for. Management decided to let the unicorn take the lead on these client projects. He was confident for a full month and then decided to leave the company (dat seniorship). The company never recovered after that stunt.

To be clear, the blame is on management, if most of your seniors tell you the deadlines are impossible to meet then listen to the majority vote.


Ouch! Just reading that hurt!
