Communicate Rescue Results
"The results of the project rescue intervention should be summarized and communicated to the rest of the organization for several reasons. The previous project, and previous attempts at the project, may have created a lot of skepticism and negativity in the organization. A publicized success will help to offset this. There should also be a quick celebration in honor of the hard work that has just been done. Resources that have worked long hours should be encouraged to take time off, preferably without dipping into their vacations. A party is also useful."
"At this point in time, personal agendas will likely return, and some of the original thinking that got the project into trouble in the first place will begin to reappear. Some of these are natural, such as competitive behavior, while others may be nasty such as personal jealousies. The next subphase offers a hedge against this."
