|English term or phrase: me too projects|
Can anyone explain to me what a "me too project" is? A project that involves more people than are necessary? A project that is so inviting that everyone has to jump on board? Or an Dangliscism invented by the author of the German text I'm translating?
Much obliged for your help!
I essentially agree with the previous 2 answers, but I wanted to offer a more concise alternative. I think it doesn't necessarily have to be a "copy cat" project (although it can be). I immediately think of the low-carb food product craze in the US, from people jumping on the Atkins diet bandwagon.

From a link:
We've eliminated the pretenders and gotten back to real entrepreneus who put up their own money and work without pay. We don't have as many me-too projects -- everything is new and unique.
"recycling" options to enable folks to recover after putting in vigorous stints, and after projects terminate. They need special arrangements for "healing" folks whose projects fail, as fail they must in some measure, if the organization isn't attempting only "me-too" projects of little risk.
