If you have managed large project portfolios, or worked as a consultant helping different companies, you’ll recognize the situation. It’s particularly apparent when you start a new leadership role or assignment. Remember the questions you asked early on, ones like “why are we doing this project?” and “why do we have so many projects?”.
The answers will also be familiar. “It’s important for (insert country)” and “marketing want it” or “it’s been going for a long time and it’s probably still important”.
