Re: 3 Simple Steps to Automate Your IT

A4Avner

All recommendations are well & good but with out enough resources let's face it even if you can find ways to be more efficient, the reality is you will be miserable attempting to accomplish the increased work load in less time with fewer resources.  There are a couple of things one can do to help bring attention to the fact. You must take these next steps with the best of intentions in mind.  Insure that management is aware that the resource constraints are putting some aspects of your operation at risk of financial loss, loss of life, tarnished reputation or productivity failure.  Try to present this with empirical data not just "whining".  Then, if all else fails - FAIL!  That should bring attention to the fact that something is wrong.  This could cause you to lose your job & when they try to bring someone else in, there's a good chance he won't do any better.  The other remote possibility is that management will be so desperate to fix the problem, that when they ask you, "What do you need to fix the problem?", you can finally reply, "Let me get some additional help"!
