I am currently working on a project with another delivery manager. Set up is as follows
- Product owner who sets requirements
- 2 Delivery managers, myself and another (who works directly with product owner)
- UI/UX, agencies, copy team designers managed by her
- dev team managed by me
To cut a long story short:
My team delivered project on time, when there were delays it was caused by bottlenecks from dependencies on her team not being addressed quickly enough
Decided to dive deeper into JIRA, and could see from metrics that the other delivery manager is implementing Scrum in a poor way. Burndowns are never met, velocity is all over place. Average ticket completion time is over 5 days etc In contrast, my teams average issue completion time is 1 day
As part of closing down ceremony, presentation was done to my department, the slow delivery manager and my devs were given credit, my delivery plan and the role I played is not mentioned at all. In private I was told by product owner I was doing a great job, but I kind of felt she overlooked me when it mattered. Given that before the presentation they had a slide on the other delivery manager's delivery, I suggested to have a slide on my role in the delivery, but the product owner didn't want to do it saying that it is to low level.
I am in two minds of how to approach this, on one hand I am telling myself that I should not care as long as I get the job done but then on the other it is bothering me that I've not been acknowledged for my hard work. I am a new joiner, and want to build a reputation.
What do you think? Should I let it slide?
