Besides project monitoring (a.k.a aktiviti kejar mengejar dengan engineer dan Project manager), I have to complete all these before 2009 ends:
- revise the team members' roles and responsibilities for 2010
- skill growth plan for 2010
- measurements for 2010
- update templates for operational improvement
I'm glad I have taken many annual leaves throughout 2009. Now I have only 4.5 days of mandatory leave that I must take before 31st December.
Oh yeah, I have another challenge. One of my senior team members decided to leave the company after she got a job that only requires 9-5 commitment. The management didn't counter offer her as her reason for leaving was to have more time for her family. There's nothing I could offer as the nature of her job here includes 24 by 7 support and project deployments (where the activities require system downtime and can only be performed during weekends or at nights).
So, before 31st December I am going to train an intern to become competent and ready for project deployments. This is not going to be easy. They gave me a freshie and expect to get a skillful engineer within 2 months' time. Diorang ingat aku ni Magician ke apo?
BTW, magician yang nama 'Cyril' tu adalah agak cute. Ramai kawan-kawan aku di Twitter dan Facebook yang mention nama dia sehari dua ni....Keh keh keh...
Magic, kucing pandai pakai topi.... hehehehe
