It is commonly believed that the Project Manager is responsible for the success or failure of a project – but is that actually true?
If a project is running over budget by a factor of x3, and is late by months, or even years, was that the PM’s fault ? Or maybe it was a hopelessly optimistic project design, or an error in producing initial estimates. Was it the lack of achievement by delivery ?
It will certainly impact those stakeholders providing the funding, but what responsibility lies with those who commissioned the work ?
