Winds of Change

3:12 PM
Everyday is a new day.
New challenges !!!

We have a new Boss.
Oh - Lydia is still there.
But the management has added one more layer to our interaction.
We have a new Delivery Head Mr.Vivek Sethi.

He's been shifted from the "Emerging Accounts" div to ours.
Andy will now be the Projects Director for the MS division.

I remember the Old days when it was just the Skill heads and the 2 PMs - Sumanta and Me reporting to Lydia - the program manager.
Times change, we continue to grow and learn to weather the Winds of Change.....

Monday BOOM

3:06 PM
Things go BOOM
What better day, than a MONDAY !!!

IIS 6.0 - it seemed like an easy project - actually it is.
But then issues keep cropping up and things go boom boom...
They think i'm being too rough, that I don't communicate well enough to the team. I'm not a sissy and cry baby and well-- I respect peoples feelings and emotions - but I don't like pussyfooting issues. They made the schedules - so they must adhere to them too.

SMSg - SME's - Mr. M - his mom has gone boom boom

Burton - my SMEs have gone boom boom

Office Online - everything was fine - we're in the groove now. But MS has lost all its writers and so the project has gone boom boom.

soon I shall go boom boom!!!
i doubt if anyone will be sensitive to my pain.

One Problem SME

3:17 PM
Maybe I shouldn't be doing this.
The thought did arise in my mind; but then I pushed it aside and began this writeup on One of our problem SMEs.

The Name - Mr.M
The Project - ILT - Troubleshooting Exchange 2K3

The Problem(S)
  1. NO ownership of the project,
  2. NO accountability for delivery schedules,
  3. LOTS of talk - no results,
  4. GOOD Knowledge base - no application,
  5. ATTITUDE problem - when working in teams.
  1. Jai is searching for a backup.
  2. Have tried talking to him without success.
  3. Have had Sarbani (Skill Head - Writing) talk to him too - No luck.
  4. Have tried all of Dilberts tactics too - no results
  5. Maybe we could just fire him - without any payments

Ideas anyone????
