…Trust them to deliver

The words no business manager or product team wants to hear….Its the corporate game. You have, just HAVE to use the internal team to deliver your project… there is no other way…. except

This team never delivers, not on time, not too budget, not to spec… and its not just you whining. They’ve been bench-marked…. you got the facts to support you…

Re-frame what you as a the business owner of a high profile, high budget project have just been told by more senior manager.  If you went to the market with a basic RFP and asked this service provider to provide you with a list of references… there would be none. If you asked them to tell you about a time when they had successfully delivered a similar project on time and to budget…they couldn’t…

And you STILL have to “trust them to deliver” ….A lack of candor forbids us from calling this out for what it is…absurd. It’s institutionalized failure on grand scale.

We need to call it, be unreasonable in our demands to the company to actually make the company better, get results and make progress…
