Bob Tyler a 23 year veteran of the IT industry has seen it all. Having graduated from UC Davis, California with a BS and MS in computer science, joins a modest sized chip manufacturing industry in an environment where everyone was first name basis with visionary leaders and employee friendly managers. Over the next two decades the organization grows into a global multinational company with a presence all over the world. The advent of globalization and outsourcing reduced the once visionary leaders and managers to self preserving and turf seeking cabals chasing greener pastures for cheaper labor. Bob Tyler is reminded of episodes of Takeshi’s castle where he sees the management as the monsters who are busy taking their competition and employees down as they attempt to overcome the obstacles. Employees have been reduced to mere nameless faceless usernames across 10000 miles, and dissatisfied customers are statistics for meaningless dashboards, metrics, and standards created purely for feel good purposes.
