It was the same project. Requirement and expectations management was done better. Communication about current status was done better. The descend to troubles described in original article is not just "too much work". It is bad decision making.

And I stand behind this 100%. Non technical management cant really do the above and where they can, it is only when technical staff feeds them accurate information about difficulty and scope. Someone making up requirements in his head and then coding something much more complicated is not a mark of genius. It is mark of someone who don't listen.
