There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have.
In project management (to be honest, it can be applied to any type of magagemebt😎) it is all about ownership. You need to make sure each issue, risk, assignment, task, process step, action item has an OWNER. If it doesn’t, then your owners will be somebody, anybody, everybody and in the end – NOBODY😶🌫️
