Management screams “CHANGE” without any context or direction as to what that change should be. Systems, management techniques, training, and buzzwords are randomly thrown at you in the hope that something will work. It will be your fault when it doesn’t.
The IT staff remaining after the first round of layoffs is left in the dark and are scurrying to get out before the next axe falls. Anyone good already has their foot out the door.
