Pulled apart by horses

What with studying and preparing for my first conference, I’ve had quite a busy year. I was looking forward to winding down for the Christmas break with some reading, and to then fully get back in the blogging saddle.

Alas, this won’t happen. Events, dear boy. Events.

I work in a small team (five people) within a small company (eighteen people) doing largely ad hoc work. Through separate, unrelated events, my team will shortly become two people (temporarily).

Our view on the Iron Triangle (below) is that time is the variable that will be impacted first when events change.

As such, my working hours will inevitably be increasing until he hire new people. And so this blog will see reduced activity for a while (unless I either queue up posts over the break, or squeeze in short posts such as this one), though I do want to publish my thoughts on some of the excellent presentations at the recent New MR conference I (virtually) attended.

In the meantime, if you know any research executive or managers that want to do media and technology research for an award-winning company (we’re up for another one on Monday) based in Putney, then get in touch. My email address is on the about page.

I really enjoy working for a small company. But at times they can certainly get their salary’s worth.
