Modern Middle Manager
Primarily my musings on the practical application of technology and management principles at a financial services company.
Let's See How Agile We Really Are

Tuesday, January 25, 2005  

I had the pleasure of introducing two new projects to the staff today. Two new projects will be defined tomorrow. In addition, we have three outstanding projects running for at least another month. This week lays out how agile our department is really going to be.

Of the seven projects that will be running, two of them add revenue. The other five are compliance- and security-related. Of those five, four are related to some Sarbanes-Oxley cleanup. So I will wind up running my seven staff into the ground primarily to satisfy regulatory requirements, which seem to get tighter every year. Yikes.

The good news is that, with our new project framework, I think we'll get more of these accomplished in a shorter amount of time than we used to.
