The question https://workplace.stackexchange.com/questions/638/is-the-lazy-project-manager-approach-really-as-beneficial-as-the-author-descri is gathering close votes as Off Topic, probably because we have a Project Management site where the question has a better home.

However, site scopes overlap and just because a question is on topic on one site doesn't mean it's off topic on all others. We've indicated a management perspective is welcome in Are questions from the perspective of management on topic?

What about project management? When do we draw the line and why?

If the question is strictly about performing project management then It is clearly off topic since that is a specific specialized work function.

We are probably going to have some overlap in dealing with some aspects, i.e. problems with stand-ups, dealing with pm/coworkers, etc. If the question is like this and clearly belongs in Project Management we should offer them a migration. If it is unclear then leaving the question where asked is probably the best course of action.

I suspect this question might be rejected there because of its general bad subjective request (is it as good as claimed?) though I can see a version of this question that would be accepted there.
