I sat there, amazed and appalled at the admission and omission. Having identified a major and seemingly probable cause for failure, she had done nothing to address it. Nothing Iíve said about preparation, planning, thinking ahead has sunk in. And clearly, the idea that you are responsible for managing the project does not seem to mean the same thing to her that it does to me, or to most others. I cannot determine if this is a generational thing or a lack of intelligence/awareness thing. Lack of experience doesnít count after nearly a year and this many months of mentoring.
