Comment Wrong attitude! (Score 3, Insightful) 389

Why are you resisting pressure from managers? The more you push one way, the more they'll push back.

A far better approach to managing your managerial stakeholders is to say "Hey, that's a great idea! Let's do an experiment... let's change your cartridges to soy for a few months and see how they go!"

This way even if they don't work, you're seen as a listener rather than a roadblock.

Yes, we will be going to OSI, Mars, and Pluto, but not necessarily in that order. -- Jeffrey Honig
