IT Manager, it’s a monkey job…

In my current job I’m active as a manager where I have a team of +20 people. My main focus is to guide these people through their career and help them grow into professional IT consultants. Sometimes I get completely overwhelmed by the questions, problems,little and bigger things, … that people keep asking me.

My manager(the manager’s manager Winking smile) noticed it and shared the following article from Harvard Business Review with me; Management time: Who’s got the monkey?. Although from 1974(!) still as relevant today…

Don’t forget the follow up article Making time for Gorillas(part of the same link).

Thanks Jörgen for the tip! And now I have to go as it is time to get the monkeys of my back…
