Not trying to be a jerk here, actually trying very hard to be the opposite…
But the “Weekly Update” seems to be a bit of a microcosm of ST at large.
There is both an implied and explicit commitment to provide weekly updates to the community by the Chief Executive. This wasn’t just a casual commitment without cause, this was in the face of poor performance and reliability that resulted in loss of faith - not only in the systems, the engineering but also in the leadership.
Following a week of really bad outages, the worst since the weekly updates started, the commitment is not delivered upon. This is the Chief. The Chief has a calendar. The Chief has assistants, etc to help keep things on schedule. Yet, no update.
Then, the response is… “Sorry about that, will get to it eventually…”
Is this the culture of ST? Is this the sense of urgency, follow through on commitments the organization has? Is this the example from the top that is followed? Seems it’s possible.Everyone at ST can see this thread. If one is being led by example, this is not a good one.
