Hello lovely reader(s). Hey, I’ve got great news! Reorgapalooza is back! I know! Woo-hoo! What’s that? What’s Reorgapalooza? Read on.
Some (one?) of you may remember the last time we went through Reorgapalooza. I wrote about it in one of my year end reviews. It was a magical time. There were org charts and SharePoint sites and press releases and all kinds of wonderfulness. And it’s back!
The soulless multi-national conglomerate that I work for has a new CEO. There’s a new sheriff in town. And you know what that means, right? Yes, that’s right, it’s time for the quadrennial corporate reorganization!
This year’s version is starting to look like a real doozy, with plenty of synergies and competencies and outside-the-box thinking. Why it was just four short years ago that we held our last Reorgapalooza, which was supposed to get us lean-and-mean for the year 2020. And we’re already having another one and it’s just 2019! Brilliant!
The way I see it, this can only mean one of two things. Either the last Reorgapalooza was such a roaring success that the business community is loudly clamoring for an encore performance, or we failed abjectly and the new sheriff is riding in tout de suite to put out the flames and save the damsels in distress. In his first week in the saddle he’s already whacked one of the old sheriff’s capos, and abolished the previous reorganization, so methinks it might be the latter case. Just saying.
So it seems we’re just calling a four year do-over. Taking a mulligan. Psych. I meant to do that. And if you think old rudyblues’ life is going to change, can I interest you in some nice ocean-front property? In Arizona?
