What happens if you are not a process person and you do try to challenge your own knowledge with someone who is pro in process ;)
Yes guys you make a big booboo out of yourself…and that’s what happened today @ work.
“The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.” ~ Julia Cameron
This person is new to the organization and you can see how excited they are that they challenged the Project Management with UAT test process ….she even came close to where she said..we might delay the implementation date …gosh!!!!
I am the project manager for this and guess what…am not moving the implementation date as I don’t find any solid reason to do so..!
“I do not believe in failure. It is not failure if you enjoyed the process.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
The issue started when they wanted to poke in there nose where they got confused with UAT testing and Training…lol!
Today, there was scheduled a serious one hour meeting with all the product managers, SQA manager, Project Manager, Release Manager, Sr Relationship Manager and my manager and what not…
“You all have issues but don’t make peace with them.”
Good thing was that everyone in the room believed in me from the beginning and guess what…as the meeting was proceeding, it totally became a mockery where people started laughing at the kinds of reasons that she felt that this implementation needs to be delayed!!!
“Delay is the deadliest form of denial.”
Guess what..the person who was planning on delaying the implementation ended up saying, there is a gap in her knowledge with regards to the product!!! I think one has the right to ask questions to fill the gap but seems like someone didn’t want to commit on that one..until ..!
“The crucial variable in the process of turning knowledge into value is creativity.”
and also…’ oh we cant delay the implementation because if we do so then the vendor will start charging’ hahaha it was a big laugh as how can you turn yourself around so quickly…?
“Turnabout is fair play”
It was a total waste of an hours time as something more constructive could have been achieved in that duration of time. I learnt my lesson that any communication I need to make sure its in written proof :D
“To learn is to change. Education is a process that changes the learner.”
But over all what I believe is : “Success is a process more than a realization”
