A lot is going at work for my part. I remember how I had a discussion with my manager when I recently started this job, about my personal development. I remember him saying he’d like me to take an active role in our department’s business development (verksamhetsutveckling) program. At the time I had no idea how I would be able to contribute, but then again, you need to have gotten into working properly before you can really see any areas of improvement.

Perhaps one of my ”problems”, if you will, is that I tend to get overly excited about things that I think can (and ought to) be improved in order to create more efficiency, standardization, and most of all structure. Whilst I’ve come up with several ideas I also stumble upon the fact that not everyone shares my point of view – an elder colleague said it very well:

It is always exciting with new people coming into the company because you see things with a fresh eye. There is just the not so little challenge of convincing all the stubborn ”oldies” that its time for something new.

So I suppose I’ll have to take it slow, make one change at a time, and kind of ”grow” on the senior engineers so that they have a change of heart.
