Beware the unknown

Sometimes, IT must reckon with an unfamiliar force. The first step is to get through the situation. Then evaluate what to do next. One IT pro faces a bad scenario after a takeover when a "seasoned" manager from the new company oversees the systems migration. The project's fraught with poor planning, communication, and execution, yet the manager deems it a "success." Seriously?
At times like this it can be hard to see the forest through the trees. So take courage, and proceed one step at a time.
