“I’m spending the morning getting this report done.” November 6, 2008

Posted by That Guy in Overheard.

Something that is both disturbing and endemic of the current corporate environment:

I’m spending the morning getting my monthly report done, and then I’ll work on our Huge Software Release.

The Huge Software Release affects every single one of our customers. We’re using it to try and get people to start using our products after they see how well this new one works. But I recently overheard a manager say he would be spending the entire morning of release day finishing his monthly report before doing something that could conceivably affect hundreds of thousands of people.

Way to go, corporate mentality!
