Tod's New Role

A snippet from the new org chart at Tod's office

When Tod's boss unexpectedly left the company last week, the Prism team were left adrift in the midst of a lot of work. Tod took charge to make sure everything continued smoothly, and now it's been made official - he's a manager with two people reporting to him.

Tod always swore he didn't want to move into management, preferring his purely technical role, but he is truly excited about this. Managing the Prism team means he gets to set the direction for the project, something he is eager to do as he sees more potential for it than his recent managers have done.

He must quickly learn the ins and outs of all the people management tasks, too. By the end of the month he's got to come up with annual objectives and a review plan for his two engineers. I know he'll manage.

Congratulations, Tod!

You are ready for this new challenge--way to go!!

Hey Tod,
Congrats on the promotion! I supervise 25 engineers and it can be like baby-sitting for grown ups.......What you think you're going to do (all those lofty, great plans to improve things) vs. what you end up focusing on is alway an eye-opener......
Good luck....

Omedeto!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!
