    An amusing typo on LinkedIn job advert from Sagepay.

    They're looking for a person who knows about: "Undertaker Post Implementation reviews and ensure each lesson learned has an action and action owner" - Is this a case of failure not tolerated?

      Re: Undertaker Project Manager

      Judging from the style and use of capital letters, this might have been written by a german. "Under-taker" ... "Unter-nehmer" means "Entrepreneur" (which is in turn "Entre-preneur", where the words mean exactly the same). Though that probably does not shed any light on what they want ...

    It means the project has ceased to be, expired and gone to meet its maker?

    Maybe it's a LIFO style review and they've omitted your review is based upon the mistakes of your predecessors

    Typo, of the "fat fingered" variety.

    Drop the trailing "r" in "Undertaker", and it kinda makes sense in HR/manglement-speech.

    Maybe not an amusing answer, but William of Ockham was a serious kinda guy ;-)
