Acquired

Well the cat’s out of the bag now, the company I work for has been acquired. What does this mean? Well it depends which level you look at it from. Business wise it should be good for ‘us’… yadda yadda yadda. Main change for me will be a different boss. Initial reaction to that piece of news wasn’t good, but that’s unfair to my new boss who I don’t know well enough to judge. There are a multitude of other thoughts fizzing round my head, not all positive, but I am growing increasingly apathetic to the situation. 4 weeks ago they told us. 4 weeks and that’s all the information we’ve had. Not good.

One of the main contributing factors (although it is a grey factor = difficult to measure) in most badly handled situations is lack of communication. Most people will take bad news a good deal easier if they are given answers to the questions that pop immediately into their heads, professionals call it change management, otherwise known as common sense or a perception of people’s needs. Anyway, I’m gonna stop before I say something that will get me into trouble.

San Francisco diary should be up soon… bet you can’t wait…
