Just here for some advice, as I've never faced this before.
I was part of a team delivering a project that was quite bumpy. There was a perfect storm of issues, with a terrible client and an absent, yet difficult partner.
I was 'the guy' doing ALL the technical stuff, and despite the tough times, I really think I made it work and gave the client a deliverable that was far better than what they had paid for.
It's been a few months, and the client has apparently given a very negative review of our work, and the partner is blaming me directly for this.
Because the project was far from smooth, I made sure to have a paper trail of me flagging issues / concerns, and doing what I could to mitigate issues. Basically, I believe I have evidence that objectively shows I am not to blame.
My question is, should I dispute the partner on this, or take the hit and hope things move on? Apparently the partner has to 'invest' extra money into the project (ie it's a massive write off) because of the screw up. I don't think I'd get fired if I just copped it, but I also don't think it's fair for me to be the scapegoat.
However, as I said above, I've never been in this situation before. What would you suggest I do? If you've faced a similar situation, can you tell me what happened?
Appreciate the help.
