Handling a resource with the right attitude but the wrong skills

  1. Over commit on the deliverables — These resources are usually in the good books of the management since they are known for their attitude. They have no idea about the amount of work pending to incorporate or complete a piece of work. To please the management, they start committing on deliverables without consulting with the delivery team.
  2. They start playing the manager — Just because they commit and get into the good books of the management, they start setting deadlines and listing out the tasks (in the form of one liners) for the team to work on. Despite the fact that the role they perform is that of a coordinator or a QA, they start assuming that they are the ones who are managing the project (management uses such roles to do the follow ups)
