You need to find another project if you don't want to get extended!

Tech implementation projects are never ending. Almost everyone wants to jump ship even if they go and do another Tech project. The leadership is usually very adept at giving you excuses to keep you. The conversation is probably to either bulk up your role or making sure you are given a role you like. I will suggest that you tell them what you are looking to do and learn about and ask for their advice on how to make that happen. It usually shifts the convo from the project to your aspirations.

This in our meeting, I plan on talking to my coach about this too. I don’t want to be stuck on this project but also don’t want this to be awkward or backfire on me in any way.

funny

I think that depends on your coach.

You could try and position as I’d like to continue in this role but are there other work streams I could get involved with on the account? Depending on your workload, you could try and see if there’s work that more aligns with your end goal.

The play here is to either ask for a new workstream or go to a new project the PMD has sold. Unfortunately, you’re supposed to be on long term implementations — that’s how Deloitte works

Why do you want off?

They may be happy to help you see what arc your career could take. Its not expected that you stay in the same position, but it may be longer than you think to move.

Depends on what the Op wants to do, if it were myself I would find my way out of implementations ASAP or you will be doing it rest of your career. I had buddies who have done implementation for years on end and always asked for more strategic projects. Myself, I have never been on one more than two months at a time and never implementation…

What team are you in? I think make it clear that you are learning a lot but this is not where you want to head
