I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
misunderstood PM role: it's the PM's right to use any metrics available, you've shown him something that measures project performance and then [wrongly] denied him access to it.
misunderstood your role: you've made more work for dev team, if you're the TL you've let down your whole team by this, if you're not the TL even worse: you've overstepped your bounds and possibly put your entire deliverable at risk.
Probably get away with it, unless your PM is the strict by the book (humourless) type.
Do not switch off your computer.
So I've started a new job, where part of it is being in charge of Health and SafetyI have to watch various DVDs and select the most informative to be used as part of our training schedule. The manual handling[^] one is presented by Diane Youdale - best known as Jet from Gladiators[^].
F*** knows if the information is any good as Ive spent the whole time imagining what I'd like her to manually handle. oh and I don't even need to watch the rest, but I might watch this one again just to make sure.
£90?!! I think Jet's a psychologist now (psychiatrist? I never remember the difference, I know one has a medical degree, the other used to hit people with giant cotton buds while wearing spandex).
For last job I did that needed a manual handling assessment I don't know if HR had a sense of humour or if I just have a dirty mind but the Word document we had to complete and return was man_hand_ass.doc.
