I have a manager who is very much a micromanager. Does not allow her staff the opportunity to grow or advance, which has become very obviously as of late.
Our company recently merged with another. We are in the early stages of combining our two departments and migrating our software to a new system. Several of us have experience with this type of work. Some even have experience with the software we will be transitioning to. We have expressed our eagerness to be involved with the migration, but to no avail. Our manager always has excuses for us to not be involved.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to approach the Project Lead without stepping on the toes of our current manager?
