For the next few weeks, I am leading a tiger team1 to solve a manufacturing problem. It's the first time my company tries this; it promises to be exciting and intense. Also, it should be done in January.
Meanwhile, my original project is in the hands of my boss and his colleague, since the software team lead is off on vacation as of Monday... wish them luck! (And me, when I get back... this can't be allowed to derail the new product's development permanently.)
