We finally got to have an Offsite Meeting, albeit the venue was my House rather than the plush confines of a resort. Kinda better it happened this way.
We'd been discussing the issue of brainstorming and attempting to set things right.
Vikram finally sent out the email telling everybody -we were gonna leave office at 5PM on a Friday evening and put our heads to work. The aim was to move out of the Transaction oriented system we were following and move to a newer Project Management system.
We gathered at the venue by 7 PM and work started. Calls happened as we started getting some structure into place. The work is not complete - but the first step has been taken - in the right direction!!!!!
The Attendees were Vikram, Raghu, Venu, Suresh and yours truly. We really missed John at this meeting. He'd been the one clamouring for an offsite conclave for 5 months. Now we had to have it without his brains to pick. That's a loss we'll live with - I guess.
