you need to take ownership June 23, 2009

The phrase “take ownership” is a scary one for employees. It means you have to actually be responsible for a project’s failure, as in the Dilbert strip above. No one but a manager is responsible for a project’s success, because no matter how much your manager lauds you, s/he will claim all the credit when that happens. A good manager knows how to claim credit and deflect blame. A good employee knows that it’s important to recognize when it’s happening and start searching for a new job.
