    Default Project of doom

    In the last couple of months we've lost a PM, test manager and now enterprise architect. I'm the only one (BA) that's been here from the start.

    I can't think what the common denominator is that's making these people leave - any ideas?
    Because feelings...

    Maybe they're all crypto billionaires now so don't need to work?

    Started at my present clientco six months ago in a team of several contractors, but they have been disappearing one by one, like that Agatha Christie novel Ten Little .. , you know the one.

    A couple were pushed, due to competency issues, and three more have decided (rightly) that the work wasn't pushing them enough and their skills were atrophying, so they're off next week.

    But I'm not bothered if the work is a doddle, and many of the permies none too expert. That's just how I like it.

    Pah that's nothing.

    I've been the only 'BA' on my project for 15 months. In that time we've had two test managers, 6 enterprise architects, 3 integration engineers and we're on our 7th, yes 7th project manager, 3rd report developer. But we still have the same permanent development team of 3 who have been there between 20-28 years each and work at the pace of a Special Needs Milanbenes.

    I've been covering every job at some point except the EA role and I've decided not to renew in 8 weeks even though they want me for a year and already increase my rate my some mark. They;ve now asked me to run it!

    It's like pace.
    What happens in General, stays in General.
    You know what they say about assumptions!
