A supervisor has given you a project and asked you when you think you can have the project completed. You answered next Wednesday. You’ve worked hard during your usual 40 hours/week and next Wednesday has come but you have not quite finished your project yet. Wednesday comes around and your supervisor has seemed to have forgotten about this project and have not followed up with you yet on this project. It’s now Friday, and your supervisor still hasn’t asked you anything about this project!
Please answer the following questions:
If you could go back to Friday the previous week (before the project was due), what would you do differently? Draft an email communication to your project manager.
If you could go back to Tuesday (the day before the deadline), and assuming you’ve done absolutely your best to finish the project but just weren’t able to, what email would you draft to the communication to your project manager? Draft that email now.
