Phases of a Project

Engineers often say there are 7 phases to a project. I list them below:

1. Uncritical Acceptance
2. Wild Enthusiasm
3. Dejected Disillusionment
4. Total Confusion
5. Search for the Guilty
6. Punishment of the Innocent
7. Promotion for the Non Participants

I leave it up to the reader to determine where BP and the Obama administration are on the project phase continuum.

Older heads claim there is an 8th phase. It is:

8. Slaughter of the Wounded by the Auditors
