Well, you blew the project, and now you need someone to blame. You could blame the guy who just left or your archenemy in accounting, but blaming either would have consequences you don't want. The vendor - now that's an easy target. This column will provide you with a roadmap and talking points to transfer all your mistakes onto the vendors. This is an opportunity for you to export blame, a time-honored approach for those who are adverse to responsibility.

You don't have to accept the responsibility for your failure. You have a ready scapegoat, the vendor. For your next project, you will choose a vendor who will be more responsible and be able to solve all your problems. Count on it.
