Send Answer Interview Answer 1 Answer ▲ 0 ▼ Okay, here it goes: " My answer is two fold: first, I would need to truly evaluate whether the failure of the project was that of a team member, and if it was, could the team member been influenced by factors outside of his/her control. Second, if a team member did fail, that means that the team failed. It also means that as the project manager, I would need to handle future projects with a bit more diligence and also learn what the motivators are of the person that supposedly did not perform. I'd treat it as a learning experience for both me and the individual in question." You'll notice that I did really address the question directly, instead choosing to focus on a team environment and taking responsibility. This may not work with some interviewers. answerman on Jul 19, 2011 Flag as Inappropriate Thank you! Your feedback has been sent to the team and we'll look into it. Oops!
