Project Management Ethics

Maybe one or two or you are working in what Carnegie Mellon might call a 'level 0 capability maturity' organisation. (Or maybe level 1.)

What you probably find is a lot of organisational politics and a lot of busy work and bad decision making.

In this context it is hard to get things done, and particularly to deliver complex projects near budget and approximating the target benefits.

So what do you do? Choose to not participate in a project doomed to cost and schedule over-runs, or do you get stuck in to it?

And if you do choose to run this sort of project how do you manage the dilemma of knowing you are going to let the client and stakeholders down at some point?
