Oscillation about new work from my manger

After spending ruthless two weeks of tiring work with irritating leadership reviews and with one of the worst account team, I finally found some off time to relax a bit for the next opportunity. For the next two days after completion of that service request, I did not have single work to do and was leisurely browsing YouTube videos and surfing the internet. The next day my manager was chatting with me in office communicator and at back off my mind, I knew I was about to get new work and within few minutes, he conveyed me that new work has come and it seems complicated and might take lot odd bandwidth for next two weeks. After hearing this comment, I was worried about two things, one thing is my managers conveys that service request was easy, then it would be exactly opposite of it and vice versa, the second one was if he says two days’ work, then it would take the entire week to complete it. So, now he had said it would be complicated and might take 2 weeks my time, my major doubt was whether the new service request was seriously complicated or my manger completely misunderstood it or would it really take 2 weeks’ time or much simpler work.

Manager getting furious with onsite team

So, after working on weekend with irrelevant slides and inputs shared by manager, the onsite team completely changed the direction of the service request with completely new options. I had to put in all my efforts to come up with relevant slides and out of nowhere my manager jumps in and provide some stupid suggestions, completely out of picture for the client requirements. I had no other option to incorporate the inputs suggested by my manager and each day the onsite team would convey that they are unhappy with the deck and required out of box thinking for the slides. This continued for almost a week and I had a planned vacation for next week and my manager wants to complete this request before vacation. However, onsite team was unhappy about the slides and they ensured my manager had to work in my absence. My manager was working on some slides with his own thought process and it was thrown out by the onsite team. My manager got furious about onsite teams reaction and to know more, check out blog posts in “G R Team Sites”

Looped back into irritating opportunity after vacation

So, after logging back from vacation and learning my older mails that one more team member has been assigned to support that irritating opportunity, I was relieved and was in positive thought that I would be supporting little bit and he would front end the opportunity. However, when I checked with him about the updates, he was conveying me that he was looped in to send initial version and I would take care from here to complete this opportunity. I was completely furious and for a moment I thought I got saved from this irritating opportunity and team by my vacation and now, it came back to me again, sigh! I checked with him about that status updates and pending action items to completed from end. After discussion, I found that only couple of slides to be completed and I have some related slides with me already to complete it sooner than expected. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

Discussion about the escalation mail from manager

After giving so much of explanation and reasons for not being able to address all the comments shared by the offshore lead, because of the dependencies with the on-site team and the slides for unnecessary for the storyline that was shared by the onsite team. Whatever reasons I gave to my manager, he was still unconvinced and was requesting me to address all those commands in the today’s version. I was again pointing out to the fact that those commands maybe unnecessary and it may not fit in the storyline. Now, my manager understood that the comments were irrelevant and took a step back and was revealing the actual reason for the escalation mail. The offshore delivery lead has called my manager personally after the call and was conveying that I have not addressed any of those commands shared by him and was not able to find the relevant slides required for the deck. I was shocked to hear about this, to know more about what happened read the blog post from G R team sites.

Working on a new opportunity with new delivery POC

After working on an opportunity with one of the most irritating delivery persons, I was assigned with new opportunity to work, with new delivery person with whom I have never work earlier or got any insight about his working style. As usual the initial step for the opportunity is to work on the questionnaire to be shared with the client for more information and as usual, I had the questionnaire ready-made to be shared. I have shared the first set of questionnaires to the delivery person for review and he seems fine with it and added couple of more questions to the existing list. From the initial discussions and with questionnaire task completed, I had no issue with the delivery person whatsoever. He seemed calm and quiet with all task in the control and was supportive whenever the need was there to address from my end. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”
