What are you? New to the industry? No offense but yeah, it happens all the time. Remember, "A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. 5And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them."

In the 40 years I've spent in engineering (I don't do IT, those are fighting words), I have seen more than a few white elephants to be worshiped. People hinge their careers on projects. Senior management is goaled on projects, not pure design or software design. There heads would explode if that was part of the thing.

What you are looking at is a management problem.
