It wasn’t too long ago that you executed on a near identical project which flopped tremendously. So you know this ‘new’ strategy is also destined to fail.
But that’s not the point.
“The strategy seems really innovative,” you say, your voice as filled with fake admiration as you can manage on short notice.
Your boss nods his head approvingly.
“That’s what I like to, uh-uh-uh, hear.”
Turns out, being a Yes-man is pretty easy stuff.
Still, unveiling this project is going to be a nightmare. It doesn’t come close to addressing your customer’s concerns…just like it didn’t the last time you tried it. And since the clients have already seen it rolled out a few times before, your company can no longer bank on the element of surprise.
Oh well, it’s not like it’s your company.
Besides, you can still gain something from this train wreck. After all, you have the templates for the last version of this project saved on your external hard drive. For the first time in your business career, you feel like you know exactly where things are going to end up.
Maybe you should take advantage of that?
