PM Debate: On troubled projects it is better to bail out than to double down

By Philip R. Diab, and PMI Khaleeji FZ LLC (UAE) Chapter

Recognizing a project is in trouble may be easy but deciding what to do about it is a whole lot more complicated. Similarly it might be easy to put a stop to a project that has no business justification, dealing with a poorly performing project is a different story. Is it better to stop the project and restart it again, or is it better to push forward to keep the momentum? This is the topic of this episode of the PM Debate podcast. Listen to the discussion and let us know what you think.
