About the course
Well, on paper it was a great idea. This project could take your company right up to the big leagues and provide your product line with the kind of clout that might even shake up the industry.
There have been questions about which division is reporting to whom, and even within senior management there seems to still be confusion about both the schedule and the budget. It now looks like this wonderful project could end up in nothing! What can you do?
