Project compromise, compromised project

I am putting this in mostly as a place-holder, to return to this subject later. I am preparing for a presentation later this week that has me considering the process by which ideas get developed, filtered and presented to organizational boards. I am interested in the conditions where a project with fixed resources has its core goals and designed benefits diluted by the client’s attempt to achieve more with less, and ultimately obtains much less. I am also interested in the role that the client’s project manager has in these conditions, especially the in the interpretation and reinterpretation of the board’s interests, the dilution of edge, and the presentation of compromise.

We seem dedicated to delivery of projects with resonating benefit to our clients, but they, and we, seem not to have the processes, measures, and conversations necessary to consistently and effectively deliver on this commitment. As I said, more later.
