I got a new challenge

And i got it...

When you are giving a mission to clean the messy street, the messy apartment or the mess in the office, what would you do? Will you hire a cleaner to clean the mess? Or you will attempt to clean it yourself? What is your say? I know your question will be do i have a choice?

How about project? What would you do?
I'm not sure whether i'm lucky or not? I always got a project which is a mess and challenging to make the project up and running with the expected timeline. Usually the project team has no other option but just need to move forward and patch along the way.

My boss has recently assigned me to a project which need some clean up and lots of stakeholders from external parties. A lot of my time spent in observation and understand the process. Meeting over meeting to the roadblock and assist the existing project manage to take away them. Am i the cleaner in this situation?

From my past experience, i always got this kind of project... Go into the project halfway or the project has failed in the first phase etc... It's a steep learning curve for everything. But i like this kind of challenging job which i could brush up my soft skill. And I like the moment of getting the project back on track :p

Okay enough of ranting, gotta go down to the battlefield with armor. Lot of mess waiting for TZ. Anyone can spare me a broom? *wink*
