POEM – 1


When a project fail

The owner is a looser

The Project Manager should face

Accountability examination.

This should be his explanation to himself as well as to his owner

Similarly – The Project Manager should call for

Accountability examination

The goal should be to complete the project in time

Should be a winning situation for one and all

Happy ending is always possible

With responsibility, accountability of one and all.

POEM – 5


If we are not accountable

We don’t bother for results

If we are not responsible

The work may go haywire.

We are cent-percent responsible for what we do or not do

Whether we do adventure or misadventure

We are responsible for everything that we do in our life.

Of course , this life is ours

Still – we should be acceptable to ourselves and others


This is possible when we are responsible and accountable in the eyes of others.
