Sorry to hear about this, DS. Sounds like my banker ! IF you had to ask for work, that was clear evidence of a lousy boss. Now it sounds as though she wants to take over your project because you've done so well she wants to take credit for it. And tactically smart --- if it does well, that'll be because of her genius ; and if it fails even if this is due to her inadequacies, she can blame it on you. If your work wasn't good enough, it was her duty to tell you earlier and clearly, and in writing, and to help you do it better. Now she wants you to take over the project she failed at. IS there some way to have the project team's compliments put on record ?
