Fixing a Troubled Project

NASA knows a thing or two about fixing really big problems, and this article at the NASA website by Nick Chrissotimos will help you learn their tactics in dealing with a troubled project. He uses the “4-D assessment” leadership process to determine the effectiveness of project teams, which is broken down into valuing, relating, visioning, and directing. When taking over a troubled project, renegotiate terms and costs with stakeholders at the outset, since it is the only chance you will get. Chrissotimos notes that retreats can be a great way for a team to evaluate options and share ideas in a setting that fosters communication. In the end though, there is no replacement for a lot of hard work. The grindstone is where the magic happens.
