For the past week and half I have been busting my butt in getting a project over with in which I got “volunteer” for to do. What basically happened is my work had a change where a good PM left my company and a bad one took his spot. It was sad but expected it in the way he was being treated by upper management But that is another subject.


So the finger of fate turns towards me, however my Jedi mind trick did not work saying “This is not the droid you are look for.” Someone told upper management I did some training in the past, so they said your it. Now I have to do customer training. Along with the honor comes “what is the status?” questions every day. One of the first things I know is what are the customer requirements in meeting what they paid for in service. That is the basis to start from.


And it was here that I found that upper management was not saving any previous PowerPoint documents  in bid presentation or training documents or no one knows where they are on our computer network. I don't work on that side of the network so I can't say what is the norm. So basically, I had to prepare a 90 page document as fast as I can, because of “what is the status?” questions. Can't they say anything else?


So now I reach the point where I trimmed the 90 page document into a leaner, simpler,  55 page document with diagrams, examples, etc. I rushed and work weekends to get the document done yesterday.
I sent out my final version to the committee in getting approval of which half of them are responding like a field of crickets. So the question now is when will the training take place and how large a class?

And that was when I found out, "Oh the customer wants to put this off till next year" by the replacement project manager. WHAT? You hound me for a status and you did not check before hand?


Me when I got the news


Well at least I am prepared and now know what I am getting for a lion's den. However it still does not makes me feel any better. Well maybe this does.
