When things don’t go as planned, what do we do?  Well, if it’s too late we deal with the failure and mark it down as a lesson learned.  And hopefully we do learn from it and take that learning experience into the next project.  But what about the projects where we are lucky enough to recognize it – see the big messed up picture – in time to possibly re-plan and ‘right the ship?’  If the issues are minor, then you can fairly easily redirect the project and activities, reassign things where necessary, make slight adjustments to the plan and budget, and be moving forward very quickly in the right, new direction.
