When and How Should a Junior Kill a Project?

Benjamin Cox |

Benjamin speaks on the different stages of project review. He mentions that Oreninc currently has an intern working on project review and how this has allowed the intern to do real work. Benjamin frames the intern’s reactions to discuss the process of project review. First is euphoria, where you are magically seeing only the positives. Next is happiness (better than euphoria); further aspects are making even more sense and and, while some things aren't working out in your brain, it is starting to look like the project could be feasible.



Finally comes the reality check; the details that make the project unfeasible appear and the reality that it will have to be killed sinks in. Benjamin notes that he does not mind this and has no issues doing it even after significant man hours have been invested. After all, he concludes, it is better to kill a project early if it has a fundamental reason to be killed than to invest even more time and money into it, only to kill it anyway at a later stage.
