So, I had this great idea that ensures our company ( a large financial services company) does the right thing, promotes its own product and appears in the market to be ahead of its direct competition. After a few months of work and through multiple governance rounds, it's successfully made its way through the ranks. Some events outside of our control have recently happened making my idea even more valuable and timely and forward-looking.
Now, some MDs are likely going to move in to get credit for my idea, that I worked for and I pitched and was adopted months ago.
How do I ensure people know that it was because of my out-of-the-box thinking, instinct and perseverance we are in this fortunate position? Assume that my boss is more than happy to bury or even worse get credit.
