“I’m going to throw people under the bus then I’m going to get on the bus, take the wheel and win that investment.”

Project management principles

In each episode the candidates are divided into two teams and set business tasks. The team leaders are designated as project managers and each week they flout at least one of the principles of project management. The result is that at least one of them gets fired.
