I had a great interview with +Phil Hall  of Business Superstar , we talked about what you do and don't do to rescue your project.  

Avoid blame and build trust, never hastily fire people they have the answers, use data proactively - Squeeze the numbers hard enough and they will tell you the truth; it’s integral to their job.  I wrapped by explaining what to do if your project isn't recoverable.

I just had a great interview  with +Robin Miller... Stay tuned for the video.
