A person deciding to pursue the exhilaration of human flight could step from the ledge of the 100-story John Hancock Building and enjoy about 8 seconds of bliss. Whether the flight is successful all depends on how well one controls the landing. Turnarounds often seem to be going nicely until you near the end of the project and discover it is quickly spiraling out of control. That last 5% can be all too illusive, often consuming far more man hours, project duration and budget than you ever forecasted. A poor finish can be negatively consequential to team confidence and to a team leader’s reputation.
