I attempt to multi task on conference calls and handle instant messages and mails but have to be honest and say that I am kidding myself if I am taking in the conversations that rattle on in the background in the background.
This is not the way to deliver a quality product and, without a doubt, something important is going to be missed from our project. As a result I am attempting to ensure we keep on track and that my arse is covered when it all goes tits up.
T&M are also disgusted as we only managed to make it out for a walk on Tuesday.
