Over the top
At one point or another, every project manager faces a budget overrun whether it's due to a change in scope, a design flaw or inadequate procurement.

It details how gathering the group, looking for backup, moving on, opening up communications, and doing the shuffle can help a project that is over budget. Accompanying the article is a sidebar that discusses two historic projects with outsized budget overruns: Canadian Firearms Registry and Sydney Opera House.
