Blasted by offshore delivery lead during the review

The offshore delivery POC and I were reviewing the slides and modifying it based upon the on-site team updates and in meantime I have also had scheduled a call with the offshore delivery lead for his inputs as well. Call with offshore delivery POC were going in smooth manner and was hoping the same to be with the offshore delivery lead. The call with the offshore lead started the initial two slides where the standard one and there was no much comment on it, he moved on to the other slides and was reviewing it each and every line and was validating it with me. As he moved on with the other slides, he was asking me the purpose of the slides and requesting me to check with all my team members and put in relevant slides. At one point he was completely furious and was checking with me what I was doing in the entire day and there was no much update to the deck than the older version, I was completely furious hearing it, how can he say that I have never worked on this slides? And he was expecting me to update all the slides based on my knowledge. Know more about what happened at G R Team sites.

Iterative changes for opportunity from irritating POC

As called out in earlier posts at “G R Team Sites” that I have been assigned to work with one of the most irritating delivery person in the team and was left all alone as offshore delivery leader have clearly called out that support would not be available from offshore team. Initial calls were to add few slides to the deck, but later on, it went to changes to every part of it. At one point of time, I had to modify every slide with too many updates. However, with my skills and repository, I was able to close off all updates by end of the day with hope that there would not be any changes in the next day. Nevertheless, every day I would get new changes to be made and modifications to structure of the deck with new storyline. I was getting furious over changes and wanted to ignore all the suggestions shared by this delivery POC.  Continue reading at “G R Team Sites” for more such experiences.

Continuing work with that irritating delivery team.

I have shared the decks they were looking for and even pinged in office communicator to validate the information and even got confirmation that these are the decks they are currently looking for and I closed the loop and started to my home. After an hour, my manager calls me and asks whether I have shared the deck with the team, and I replied affirmative stating that I have shared the deck with the team and have also forwarded the mail trail to my manager. The next day early in the morning, I get call from that account lead stating that my manager has assigned me for this opportunity and there is a call scheduled in next 30 mins and asking me to join the call. Since, it is the first time ever I was working with this team, I didn’t want to ruin my reputation with that team and joined the call. After few mins of the call, I understood the urgency in completing the opportunity and they wanted to close the opportunity in next two days and it seems lot of work to do done.

Taking office call on travel

Exactly on Friday evening I was assigned with two different opportunities, one opportunity had no work as the delivery team need to work on estimates and another opportunity had very short turnaround time and on first day I had to share questionnaire with the client. However, on that Friday evening I was planning to drive back to my native and initially the call was scheduled early in the evening and at last minute the call was postponed even more later in the evening. Now I have no options left other than taking office call while driving back to my native and I was sure the reception would be bad due to travel. I joined the call from my car and initial call discussion was all about introduction and possible scope for my team and when exact time had come for my team to raise question, the reception failed miserably and I had to stop the car on side of the road to take the call and to my rescue the delivery expert had joined the call and was raising the questions. For name sake I was raising couple of questions to mark my presence and continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

15. Finally got salary revision

After waiting for a long time and looking anxiously across various groups for some insights, finally I got my salary revision. On that day, I was assigned to work on the opportunity and the call was scheduled early in the day. I logged in for the call and finished my updates in the first few minutes and later on, the SME was discussing about some technical and project related stuff. I was least interested in listening to those discussion and as usual I was browsing through social sites for some information related to my Salary revision and one person posted an update mentioning that he/she got her revision letter in the portal and I was shell shocked. I immediately logged in to the portal and shocked to know that salary revision letter has been released. My fingers started to shake out of nervousness and clicked the link, the PDF opened and for real I got my long pending hike. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

Complex opportunity with difficult SME

After a long time, I was again assigned with the complex opportunity to work on and was preparing myself for the opportunity. Usually whenever I was assigned with the complex opportunity to work, I was tagged to the delivery expert with whom I have good rapport and, in the past, we have completed complex opportunity with ease and minimal effort. So, for this time as well I was looking forward to work with the same delivery expert and had contacted with him for further effort required on this opportunity. To my surprise I heard a shell shocking news that he would not be able to support me on this opportunity and also, I had to work with one more delivery expert for this complex opportunity. I thought the delivery expert would be cool and I would finish this complex opportunity with ease. However, the exact opposite thing happened to me and I came to know that he is the most complex person to work with of all the delivery person I had worked earlier in this company. The delivery expert was so rude and arrogant with other key people with whom we would need to work further for this opportunity. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”
