What to do when business goes wrong. When a project goes wrong the first thing is damage control. So many projects that could have been saved fail from the cover up. Ignoring or worse hiding the problems can destroy a project. Do not let problems go and hope for the best. Problems are to be expected and attacked like it was your jab because it is. As a project manager I dealt with problems constantly. If I let something go it would just grow into a bigger problem so I attacked it right away and put it to bed before going back to business.
