That Q is closed as "not constructive"
I did work/research to implement a tool among my team. Team and management liked the results, tool was implemented successfully and we are currently in a "beta" stage. But all looks perfect and seems there is no "going back".
Further research was done to find the best-fit process and the how-to docs. I came up with a set of instructions and diagrams, which again lead and management liked it and we are about to apply it as-is in our team.
Recently, a management/seniors (~5 members) meeting was organized by a lead (not mine) senior coworker regarding finding a process, the meeting had my lead in it, who suggested they look at my docs, then the meeting came up that my docs would be the way to go for all teams and not just mine. And they are about to apply it in all teams.
Later that day, I was called by the organizer, consulting me regarding couple teams who need some special case scenarios and instructions/diagrams. Trying to understand the problem (to provide a tune), the organizer started showing me letters from the team leaders of those teams. Those leaders/teams are not aware of my work, and they were not in that decision meeting, and their letters start with:
- "Coworker, the problem with your approach ... "
- "Coworker, I like your proposal, but ... "
So, after providing all the help I can, the conversation ended and I went back to my work/desk.
It seems that the organizer, after that management meeting, sent out my docs as "their process proposal". The organizer is not my lead, but we work relatively close. My lead is aware of everything but did not bring up any thing (My lead usually shields me).
If this did not go how I would want it to go. Can I do anything to not lose credits?
