A minor crisis has occurred and I've escalated it to my boss. On Friday I spoke with him face to face and provided an 'FYI' escalation so he would at least be in the loop on the problems. This morning (Tuesday), the issues persist and the key stakeholder (internal customer) has requested an emergency meeting specifically with the project team and my boss.
I discussed this with him this AM but he will not attend the emergency meeting. He "can be working on other things" and believes "we can take care of it" (which is true).
My primary concern is that this is not leadership behavior, both to our team, and to the internal customer.
The impression I have is that he's delegating the escalation back to the project team. I am curious what the MT community thinks of this type of behavior... ?
