    "memo tothree of my staff"

    just finished up preparing the sketches for tomorrow morning's meeting for project abc

    I was able to address all the concerns per your meeting notes from the 7th, unfortunately I lost 3 units....68 to 65 and lost 13k of retail but I picked up 33 parking spaces.....hope he is happy.

    XXX as the director of the studio

    YYYY as the design director for the company

    ZZZ as the assistant project manager for the project....

    you would think i would get an adequate explanation from each of you as to why you three did no drawings between YYYY and ZZZZ meeting with the client and the city on the 7th and when they were due on the 19th and in particular why no drawings were done between the 7th and the day I returned from vacation on the 12th at which point I asked each of you and emailed each of you about the status of the sketches due on the 19th and got dead silence.

    the 19th came and went with no explanation and it was not until I called a meeting with my partners and you all on the 20th did I get any kind of response which even then was silence and I had the project handed back to me to do .... no apology .... no explanation .... no I am sorry .... no offer to help out .... nothing. here clay clean up my mess.

    additionally, I have yet to receive an adequate explanation of why the last project missed the deadline by a month and a half .... this one blows my mind as you all were sent weekly status reports that it wasn't done .... and y'all said you were taking care of it.

    until I get an adequate explanation, something other than silence or "I don't know" from each of you .... I can not assign any further projects for you all to be in charge of, as, no matter how many e-mails I send each of you, meetings I hold with each of you, or memos I send each of you or times I ask each of you .... for some reason .... the drawings simply do not get done .... I simply can no longer trust that the projects i assign you will get done ....

    when each of you can present to me a system that will restore my trust let me know .... until then .... I will make and clean up my own messes ....

    You doing their work for them is not going to solve the problem.
