Who Should be Held Responsible for a Project Failure?

Role of a Manager

Discrimination is seen everywhere, be it on the basis of color, caste, religion or gender.

Today, when there is so much growth seen in the world in all the areas, there is a gender based discrimination that exists in the society that tells the reality. I have seen many female employees who feel they are being targeted while working in any project.  Especially, if that project fails or gets any escalation from client.

One such incident I recently came to know . A working mom was hired for a project and being a senior employee she left no stone unturned in completing the project. This is another thing that she had to  jiggle a lot between taking care of her family and kid.

Neither of the manager or any one was held responsible when the the other members made mistakes and client made escalation. She was the one who was made a scape-goat. The reason for this because she was soft spoken and did not know how to talk a political language.

From the above instance, I feel whether this was good or not. Should being a working mom she should have been devoted extra hours and time in office to meet the strict deadlines and completing a project without extra resources while doing what another staff should have done?

May be this would be a new learning for her which she can take along her in new venture and as a experience which is good as she would be more careful in future. But what will happen to the managers and the old senior of the project. As there work would stay same always and the approach also. They would get another scapegoat in future but the company will never grow.

The growth of a company is never possible till the intelligent minds are managed by arrogant and fool managers.

Many people don’t tell straight forward if they are getting un-favorable treatment in office as they are afraid of getting bad reviews in appraisals and have a fear of losing jobs. But trust me, to have a healthy heart, telling on the face is the best thing in a long run that you can do your mental and physical health.

A company does not know what happens in the management as the people do not have guts to come up with the frank views. They rather leave company but this would affect the company’s growth as the person who should have been kicked out of the team is still inside the team and eating it like a termite. The time is not far away when the company would be no longer in the market, and thanks to those managers.
