Multiple iterative changes and stupid conversations

I have already worked with the same delivery person on many service requests earlier and not even one was so complicated and irritating than this one. At one point, I had to extend my working hours to get documents completed on time and the manager who was supposed to be helping me was irritating me and was suggesting some unnecessary changes and iterations. One thing which was going in my way was the client deadline and with each passing day, their review comments started to slow down and even then, they were requesting me to completely change the approach. I started to be quiet and was just listening to their stupid conversations and I knew whatever suggestions or discussions in the call would be rejected later and we must roll back to starting point. As predicted, before the deadline the leadership was requesting to make changes that were made earlier and revert back to the old structure. I was laughing by myself, as I was fighting about these points earlier and no one had enough time to listen to it. To know more, please check out “G R Team Sites”

Convincing my manager about the work

After getting message from my manager, that all my work on weekend is irrelevant to the client requirements and all the slides have to be reworked again. I was furious at him and was asking him questions about exact client requirements. Now he took a step back and was consoling me that these on-site guys always have the habit of sharing the irrelevant information to us. My manager himself understood that whatever information that I have shared was relevant and I didn’t want him to embarrass further and told him that let’s take the version whatever I have shared to the on-site and get their inputs before even making iterations on the deck. He acknowledged the fact and this time he conveyed to the delivery people that we will take this version to on-site and after getting their inputs we will work on the client requirements. I felt relieved and was hoping to get some relevant information from the on-site team and they acknowledge my work. However exact opposite things happened and to know more, please feel free to check out the blog posts in “G R Team sites”.
