If the management have basically ignored the project for "a couple of years now" then they have only themselves to blame, and should be thinking in terms of a recovery plan from their lack of support.

It's not possible for a single person to be truly their own QA (etc), while still inside a big system (the management!).

Someone needs to be the proper "support" person that helps the 'LR' victim identify and resolve the (administrative / management) technical debt, so as to back out those years of problems. Victim blaming, just because you / I / someone else would have had different problems, isn't a productive way out of this double blind.

If the LR walks, will the project be cancelled, or will it be a death march? Is it better to 'promote' the LR to being lead advisor to relieve them from some of the historical hidden pressure?

It's still a problem, in many ways, with your (company's) management. Did they know they'd let the project stall, why did the take on the new project without a review?

It's not what's under the rock that's the problem, it's the rock on top!
