Expected to complete a 6 week manufacturing internal audit in 4 weeks with a team member who just joined and no experience. Director wants the draft report on the final day of the audit. Thoughts?

Say youll try to get it done by then, but client delays could deter that. At the end of the day, the director is responsible for the engagement and some deadlines are just not realistic. They won't fire you cause they need you more than you need them.

like

Agreed - id set a plan on procedures required, then scheduling any meetings with key contacts asap - so the email is out early and if client is slow it’s on them

Also any pbcs list you created send it out quick so the timing shows you are on track

Then if the client is unresponsive or difficult then the director gets involved and does the smoozing to get the client to just give us what we want

By then once it’s all scheduled and Pbcs obtained it may be late and if not all pbcs are received or the wrong pbcs then if then the director may have to jump back again shake the client up a bit - that’ll buy you time to document

Now those email time stamps will serve as evidence just in case your director comes at you demanding why this ain’t done in 4 weeks

Is anyone else returning to fully in person learning? We have been hybrid/synchronous since September, which has been very hard and not very effective. They want us to have all Kindergarten students come back in March. I want to stop live teaching over google meet all day while also teaching my students in person at the same time, but there is not enough space in my classroom for safe distancing, not enough space for movement, and sitting at a desk all day is not appropriate for K kids!

People ask about exit opportunities outside of risk/compliance all the time in this bowl so I’m hoping I get some responses. My team is hiring a presales consultant, preferably on the west coast/MT.

I’m in an awkward in between senior/manager spot.
