Limit Firefighting and Cat Herding

Fire fighting and herding cats is not project management. To bring your project back to a stable environment, pause and consider the following:

  1. Are there unidentified, poorly prioritized, or unmitigated risks that need attention?
  2. Is there a sound problem solving and decision-making process in place?
  3. Has the team been involved in these processes and bought-in to actions?
  4. Have you built consensus and gained buy-in from involved stakeholders?
