Thankless job:

success is not noticeable

little evidence the manager did anything

project looks simple in hindsight

failure is very obvious

the manager will get blamed when things go wrong

Difficult Job

Problems to solve include:

Do we have the resources (funding, people, time) for the task?

Are we certain the task is stated correctly?

How can we use limited resources most effectively?

How does recent (lack of) progress affect the plan?

What lessons can be learnt for future tasks?
