Project Management in the Funnies – No. 5

Lateral Promotion

Lateral Promotion – another example of corporate double-speak.  I had several of those in my career, as well as temporary in-charge, team leader, and dotted line authority.  But in the end, they never seemed to pan out.  The humor in this is not the saving money, it’s the reward of giving you more responsibility with the same pay by doing a good job.  I remember when I was young and naieve, that I welcomed the opportunity for “exposure”, as I got older, I realized the less involvement from upper-management, the better.  As I preferred autonomy to attention.
