Today was my first steering committee meeting. I am a PM in medium sized software firm. I was providing status report to upper management about 8 guys including all C-Level . I has basically collated a 4 page power-point with one page each sourced from different teams. While reporting for one of the team I said X is done. That caused a big stir and energy in the panel. But X was actually only implemented in a component not in the end system. I realized this when the relevant team member heard from someone and approached me late in the evening. This mistake is due to a number of things. Me being only 3 months old in the organization, currently not well aware and engaged with work with that team and having too much on my plate at the moment. This was my first meeting I don't think I got proper handover from the last guy other than a quick email. But hey its my face. I want to own up and ensure it doesn't happen again. Going to send an email to the panel apologizing and clarifying. what else should I do. Feeling really lo and sad. Thank you.

Hey

Everyone makes mistakes.

Don't beat yourself up over it. Just learn what you can from it (if anything) and move on ;)

Best of success!

Some of the best lessons we ever learn are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future.
