    I have to be very careful, as I sit next to a project manager.

    Come to think of it, at previous places, sitting next to / opposite a PM is the only way to find out what's going on with projects that I should actually be consulted on...

    Maybe I'm missing something.
    First, why would the PM wander into the server room?
    What were these two saying or doing before the PM walked in?

    That's the best way to be informed in time. Otherwise, you won't know what's happening until 2 weeks after the project's due date.

    He needs an update from the guy hiding.

    Either that or setup a SharePoint alert on any document check-ins containing a reference to the keyword "database".

    In my early days in I,  mid80s - mid 90s, the project managers tended to do a good job based on their experience in their industry. I managed a few small/medium projects myself. However as it became more structured with companies wanting Price II I have found the quality has gone backwards. Prince II emerged from the public sector that does not have a good record with IT projects. It seems common sense and joined-up-thinking went as the documentation increased. Personally I have low regard for both Prince II and MBAs.

    That would depend / rely on people writing documentation...

    Now, I'm not saying that that doesn't happen here...

    I've found that IT organizations with slack requirements documentation also tend to have slack expectations and slack deadlines, so it matters less.

    Without documented requirements; miscommunication over features and deadlines are situation normal.
