As background, I previously worked in a development role at my current company. A new development role was created last year to solve a set of perceived issues in one of our workflows - due to my experience in similar situations, I was promoted into this new role.
Over the last year, many of the achievable goals have been far slower to attain than expected; and much of the expected engineering work hasn't actually appeared yet. As such, I have been conscious of the possibility that I may face redundancy - although this hasn't been expressed to me from management as yet (I am also not on any kind of perfomance improvement plan).
Recently, my manager has made three requests that stand out to me as potentially setting the stage for future redundancy. These are:
Request for how integrated I still am with the previous team, and how much my work overlaps with them.
Request for an updated 3/12 month roadmap of the specific work to be completed.
Request for a technology stack document; specifically detailing which languages I am using and will be using.
My question is; are these requests generally standard in preparing to make a role redundant (or when considering to make a role redundant)?
I obviously cannot ask anybody to judge whether I am or am not at risk of redundancy. But as these requests were never made in my previous role, and I have no experience of a redundancy process - I am curious whether these fit into "standard things you'd expect to ask your employee, if you're considering making them redundant".
