It's like a bad miniseries, with each episode worse than the one before, only the drama is a lingering upgrade project, and the role of the CEO keeps getting recast.
CEO I kicks off the production with a run-of-the-mill assignment: Upgrade the company's IT infrastructure. He approves the three-part plan, and phase one is almost complete, exactly when the exec bows out.
Enter CEO II, but don't pay too much attention. He's kind of the understudy and merely holds down the fort until the new star steps in.
It's back to the beginning with CEO III, who asks why the company's tech is so archaic. Our IT pro fills out the details and gets approval for the second phase -- but not the third due to funding. It's progress, right?
The curtain call arrives with CEO IV, who agrees that completing the tech upgrade is a priority, but the funds weren’t yet available -- again. Yep, it’s the final act and high time to leave.
