Hi all,

TO ALL WHO FACE "BOSS" PROBLEMS.

I was working in a newly started R&D centre some timeback.
I was the only and hence "chief" Electronics Engineer there.

My boss was a genius but with a formal edu. in Mech engg and
Management (from best institutes).

So, I think I DO understand the problem.

Well, in my opinion the best thing that works out in such cases
is simply to EDUCATE the boss.
Ofcourse he should be willing to listen, a rather rare trait.

To appreciate why he doesn't consider SI more than V/I, I would
recommend, YOU first read Dr. Johnson's article "Why digital Designers
...." from his website.

Try to understand his problem and help HIM (and inturn yourself!) out.

It worked great for me.

regards,
-Dewa!
