I work in devops for a central team, and am involved in a project that has multiple smaller teams working together. As the devops personnel for this project, I'm required to be at multiple meetings a day to give updates on the status of our deployment preparations.
These meetings are valuable to everyone involved.. except for me. A large portion of these meetings are centered around asking for updates from my piece of the project, what I've done and time estimates of new work, which is understandable. The issue is that I end up giving the same updates in 3 different meetings over the course of a single day. This happens multiple times a week, every week.
While my position isn't traditional software engineering, it is an engineering position nonetheless requiring planning and a frame of mind much the same as when a developer is focused on solving a bug. Unfortunately, this means that it can take a bit to get back into actually getting work done after being interrupted by a meeting.
I don't want to come off as a slacker who just can't take advantage of short time-slots (30 minutes to an hour between meetings). But at the same time, I need my 3 hours a day back so I can actually finish the work I keep talking about.
How can I professionally bring this up to not just my manager, but the two other project managers who run each meeting, all wanting updates from me?
