The internal guerilla
Having problem getting management attention, have you? You’re not alone. But put yourself in management’s clothing. They are presently and probably up to their necks cutting cost at the moment. Don’t bother presenting vague ideas however relevant. You need substantial business cases to get attention. Therefore, gather your cross-functional peers and make a visualization of the potential and what has to be done. If possible, call some customers to the stand. Bring management a gift. Not many will say no to great benefits, especially when in line with the company strategy. Forget the schoolbook of starting from the top. Create your own guerilla from the perspective that you are responsible for your own future. You. Proactively you.
