Bad management 

Two weeks ago I joined a meeting with a set of timelines for a system migration. I pointed out that the technical work requires people who are either on sabbatical, or on vacation / doing scholarly activity and thus unavailable.

Vendor & execs agreed to talk about it offline.

Today, I joined a follow-up meeting. Same set of timelines, starting next week. I pointed out that there are still no technical people available.

Vendor & execs agreed to talk about it offline.

Bad management 

I suspect management expects at least one of the technical people to make a heroic sacrifice and save their asses, but they're the ones who put us in this godawful position to begin with.

They signed a migration contract binding us to this timeline even though our entire department urged them to choose a different timeline.

So fuck them.

@dbs this is... Real. I'm sorry on behalf of the management class.
