Read ten ways to avoid the blame game and turn project management mistakes into opportunities to move forward.
Rachael Logan of AtTask offers ten tips for eliminating “blame culture” in the wake of project management mistakes.
Logan, who pulls her tips from a post by Chris Robinson at the Projects Guru blog, begins by suggesting that you try to ignore the blame culture altogether and employ a “solution-based mind set” instead.
Avoid asking the “who did what and why” questions and look for “the steps required to move from the current position to the desired one.” Keep focused on where you want your organization to move to in the future and avoid looking back at the past. While you’re keeping your eyes firmly focused ahead, ignore the “jibes of others who try to lay the blame.”
Study the rest of Logan’s tips and turn project management mistakes into opportunities to move forward in the right direction.
