Let's have a meeting tomorrow so that we can generate a status update!

First we need to get the stakeholders together to choose a time for the meeting.

Don't forget, we're using new cover sheets on the TPS reports. I'll forward you the memo.

I'm one man writing software for an industry that is trying to boom.
There are three companies that I know of, with teams that have been working on problems for 3 years, still aren't nowhere ready for even beta testing.
For software I created for my company in 3 months. I'm just one guy. When I'm approached with a huge problem I tell them I'm working home until I solve most hurdles.
They give me room and I deliver. Teams are a time suck. When I first started the other developer there agreed. We have stepped up for every project they need, because we don't want them to build a "Team".
He's the ERP guru and I'm the custom middle ware creator and together we integrate everything they need.

In a classic IT world we would be at least a 7 to 10 member team.

My first week the guy that hired me tried to suck me into a meeting everyday, so I disappeared for three weeks. Then came back with the majority of working solution, sans their ERP connections.

They've left me alone ever since. Which is why I really like the place. This would be my worst job of my career if I had to write Failware via a committee.
