Have you ever had to quit a good software project…because you figured out you weren’t going to be successful in your role?

I had the opportunity to help two consulting companies try and rescue a troubled software project for a client.

Though I was originally brought in to help figure out how much work was left to do, I found myself in the position of being “the expert” once again.

Because of politics, deadlines, and challenges with the maturity of the companies understanding agile – I found myself overwhelmed.

Though I continually tried to reset expectations and get help, I decided eventually that it was better to move on.

Have you ever been on a good project, with good people, only to find when you really think about it you’re not effective in your current role?

Did you have a hard time getting support from management to make the changes necessary?
