For very large projects … ask for a review by Senior Management. If you have a project with multiple components, that serves a wide geographic area, that has a multiple year implementation schedule, or involves coordination of multiple partners, ask for a review. Senior Managers work with several large projects a year: it’s possible your project can be one of them.
