I don't have to assume, Urban. I have been asked the question.

You can take Sergio's philosophical approach to answering the question. However, the interviewers are usually trying to evaluate your ability to adapt to stress and to resolve issues. The answer is not as important as your reasoning behind it.

Dealing with third parties on integration work to our project. I immediately smelled it in the water as we identified stakeholders. I added this to the risk registry and monitored daily with the client.
