I'm a product owner, interested in the project success.
We had a person on the project who didn't bring value once she was on it. Although her role was defined well she didn't show any proactiveness in taking over and managing her area. Although she's very experienced in the role she was given (she worked in the role for several years on other projects), she needed to be told very directly what was needed and even when she was, she mostly tried to get other people do it for her or did the bare minimum and due to time constraints I ended up all the corrections necessary. We had several discussions on that, which brought nothing. She had major delays on her deliverables. Still, from what I hear she was very successful is portraying her "successes on the project" to her bosses. None of the team members was consulted to verify them.
Her involvement was planned to last just several months to increase our capacity and the bottomline of her engagement was negative: a lot of onboarding needed from other team members and very limited added value brought by her.
Now our project scope is to grow strongly again and for some reason the management took the decision to bring her on again assuming that by adding her we will be able to deal with the additional workload. I wasn't consulted.
I will not be able to do her job for her anymore and if other team members do, it will have negative consequences for the future of the project.
How can I signal that without coming across as hostile to her or not a team player?
