On trial this week in the downtown courthouse where I used to clerk. Every lunch spot I used to go to is out of business, safe for the corporate chains. Can't understate what optional WFH has done to these businesses and cities. As a parent with young kids obviously WFH is a lifesaver, so I can't throw stones,, but maybe for those who aren't caretakers having to come back in is a small sacrifice for saving these downtowns.

What/how much information should I give the partners?

Is there any easy way to bill for emails? At the end of each month I spend way too much time trying to collect the 0.1s from the month. I go day by day with my emails, sent then received. It’s so boring and time consuming but I have never known an easier way (aside from entering emails daily, but I find that doesn’t work either because if you get multiple emails on a case in a day, you’d have to keep editing the entry.)

The nonprofit I work at (head of HR and finance) is in the early stages of a merger. Our respective board presidents have agreed it’s in both agencies best interests with the next step to develop a proposal for a management agreement where the agency I work would take over certain aspects of the other entity (at minimum HR and finance).

Any boss ladies with merger experience in mergers have any advice? I’ll spin to solely finance as it’s my area of expertise and we’ll promote one of my reports.

What are some Org Design principles that you have seen work well for Product Management?
E.g. how would it be if the PM team was designed around Personas (I.e. one PM completely owning the problems of 1 persona, across all touch-points) rather than one “technical product” (e.g. 1 PM owns discovery, another owns growth, etc). In former, PMs would empathize with users more, but aligning internally with Engineering becomes difficult. In latter, internal alignment is easier at cost of user empathy.
