Can this project be saved?

Project managers are often given failing projects that need to be launched smoothly. This article features six project professionals providing advice for handling failing projects. These professionals identify the steps that they take when they have been given a project that is in trouble. One professional suggests auditing the nine Knowledge Areas in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) to gain an understanding of the issues that caused the project to go off-track. Another suggests conducting risk assessments. Then, these professionals provide examples from their real-world experience.
