Conversation 048 – Mind-set in MNCs

Mr.X: Hi.

Mr.Y: Hello.

Mr.X: You have sent me incomplete status and I want clear reasons.

Mr.Y: Can you please give some examples so that I can give you a proper update.

Mr.X: Here is the list of tasks for which I need proper information. <<List of tasks>>

Mr.X: The tasks that you are mentioning are already being reviewed. This is clearly mentioned in the status. The status keeps getting reset because of changing requirements and continuous work reviews going on back and forth. I think you should go through the task(s) in detail to know what is happening in them 🙂

Mr.X: Why didn’t you raise this issue about status changes?

Mr.Y: I just explained this to you. Only after the task is deployed, final update happens and the status no longer changes…the intermediate status hardly matters because work is still going on in them.

Mr.X:  It’s Okay. You may do whatever you want, but it is important that you need to update the status and keep “everyone” in the loop.

Mr.Y:  You are again saying the same thing…Okay. I tell you this…I have been doing this all the time but “nobody” responded to any of my emails. I send weekly updates but I don’t get any response on them either. These updates clearly mentions “all” the details on the ongoing task(s). I think for some reasons, people are suddenly waking up now after a long slumber…so if you want me to CC to everyone under the sun on every task I do, every communication I do, to show that I am “really working” that’s fine 🙂 because things are getting really frustrating…and all I see is indifference…if people who know the complexities are behaving indifferently, I can’t expect others involved to understand this but this has to be realised at some point because this cannot just go on…

Mr.X: Okay I need to go for a meeting. Speak to you later…

Mr.Y; (LOL)
