project management, project manager
What does project manager do in such situation when issues from all around have grown tall, intermingled and he find nobody around to discuss or consult about these issues. This is a practical scenario where any project manager may find himself into. It is quite important to know that under such circumstances the whole project is in shambles, teams working in silos – with no synchronization among them – within the team or among different teams. That situation is very serious.
Point to ponder here is how a project manager has managed (or mismanaged) to let his project reach to such a situation. This can not be treated as a normal situation. When things are totally haywire it is more important to understand what had made this project reach to such titanic condition and why has it happened. Once what, how and why are clear, next step would be to build a solid fence so that it does not happen again.
