You can't figure it out. Your project is tanking and nothing you do seems to help. Your team isn't focused, your customer has given you as much slack as they are going to and you know they are about five feet from the Bat Phone ready to call your Commissioner Gordon CEO and ask for your replacement (and quite possibly your head on a platter as well). You're missing deadlines, quality is off, and the budget is through the roof. How you stayed on this long, you just aren't sure. Time to throw in the towel? Maybe even turn in your letter of resignation? Not so fast. Quitters never win. And real winners never quit. And if you are going to go down, at least give it a real fight...
