I was presenting at a meeting to executive management and after reviewing the information I saw an opportunity to make a process better. Sounds easy enough right ?

Well, here is the rub...............

1. A variation of the idea was presented before and was shut down by the man in charge.  Yes variables had changed and my ideas for process change were different but it had the same base result.

2. The leader I was meeting with was two levels above me and MY direct manager was on the call. I had brought it up to him before and he told me of the previous no. I didn't have time to get his blessing ( Last minute meeting ) to proceed.


A. Should I have brought it up at the end ?

B. Can I go back and request a meeting to go over my findings ( two levels above me... my managers, managers, manager. )


What should I have done and what should I do now ?
