Zero. Zero, zero, zero. I have absolutely zero interest in my work.
Everyone is the next Steve Jobs in the meeting. Ideas – brainstorming – different tools – using jargon.. 👨🏫
Let's take this offline – this can be a good topic for a next discussion – let's iterate over this.
It is so interesting, the time and money the company spends on this garbage. I am right now in a meeting with 2 Product Managers (not 1!), 1 Growth Engineer (wtf is a Growth Engineer), 1 QA, 2 Engineering Managers (yes not 1, 2!), 1 Agile/Scrum/Team Coach (not even sure what she is called – mostly in the company for diversification since she is an elderly woman and seems like all she does is meaningless chat), 1 Design .. person, engineer, designer – again I do not even know and 4 developers. 12 people! 12 people discussing some shitty thing for 1 hour. What a waste..
Post its – t shirt sizes – scales – arrows – colors – grouping stuff – tables – user stories – personas – scores – matrices. Oh my god PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME. Please. Please. Please.
If you hire all these people of course they will want to do things – they can't simply sit and do nothing. And the things they do are usually dragging the company down. They are stealing the time from people who are actually doing the work. I mean what is a “Solution Ideation meeting”, why is it 1 hours long and why do you need 12 people to decide on how you will communicate a new feature to users? Why do I care? Why do you need so many peoples opinion? Just make a decision yourself, who cares if we are going to have a banner on main page or we email everyone or if we email everyone after they use the product? I DO NOT CARE. If we keep doing these meetings, we will never be able to come up with new features anymore – we will just spend all our time on brainstorming.
