Part4 of a farce in 6 parts. Why not help 'David' by posting your answers below?

Dear all,

Well, Im really into this now, but Im starting to wonder about the bigger picture. Ive just gone and set up some really smart protocols for how we scrutinise our projects on start-up and closure. We did it for really good reasons. We had all kinds of projects kicking off burning goodness knows how much resource, and I could never really put my finger on what they produced.

Unfortunately, all that seems to have happened is that weve spent a lot on someone to set up review meetings, weve delayed all kinds of things that should have started sooner, and were still trying to do too much and not really satisfying everyone but at least we know that all the smaller projects have been getting really good review time.

Im getting all kinds of stick for doing what I thought was the right thing. Help - Where did I go wrong?

Yours Etc
David
