Project Staffing"The project manager has the most critical role in rescuing a runaway project. This person's experience and skills form the foundation of the rescue."
"After the project manager, the project sponsor has the second most important day-to-day role in the project rescue effort. This person's ability to marshal the appropriate resources is clearly the key skill related to getting the right people on the project."
"Of course, the project's success is not solely rooted in processes and techniques. The experience and ability of the project team members are critical in getting the project back on track and to ultimate success."
