7 shades of project status

☀ | Green: All’s well…( at least for now, let’s update Facebook) 

☀ | Blue: Oh! Oh ! Missed a deliverable, no big deal.

☀ | Grey: Missed five deliverables. We have enough time, no worries..

☀ | Yellow: Dong! We may be in trouble…( you are already in trouble) 

☀ | Pink: Time to tell my manager…( let’s share the panic)  

☀ | Orange: Everyone knows we are in trouble except our sponsor.

☀ | Red: Sponsor needs to know today morning!..( should’ve known when you were in Grey)
