It’s the PM’s fault!

How often have we heard that cry? Especially when something goes wrong on an engagement/project.

Well in my opinion, a strongly held one by the way, that statement is often unjustified.

All too often the blame is placed on the Project Manager when in reality the whole thing should never have been undertaken in the first place.

The PM is blamed for decisions taken into which he/she probably had no input whatsoever, but the PM is the easy target.

Sometimes the PM is responsible, or partly so, but all too often the PM is the convenient scapegoat for management failings.

I will post again on this issue, as it needs to be discussed.
