How are you doing? Is your week starting to wind down?
Today I got embroiled in a few fire drills over not identifying the right teams who were needed for a few new projects.
I hold not 1 but 2 weekly meetings to discuss incoming requests and all these teams are invited to speak up and let me know if I need to include them in subsequent work. Not my fault if no one attends from some teams or they don’t say anything.
I’m not babysitting the attendance list and I’m sure as fuck not going to ping people and be like “umm hi can you come to this recurring meeting that you’re supposed to be at so we can make sure to identify if your team has work on this?” Hell no.
