Full semi-circle ...

When an organisation hits the skids, I think it takes considerable time for it to develop the momentum to create a return velocity. Listening to some very recent conversations, I am of the view that for some organisations it will be a long time coming.

I have to think back to when I started in teaching, c1996. Now what seems like a lifetime ago (which it would be for an 18 year old born in 96) ... I entered a newly merged department with next to zero traction or reputation. Paired with a group of disenfranchised electronics lecturers who would rather do their own thing. Than collaborate with the new kids on the block.

Within three years, the electronics souls were decimated, denounced and decanted into the engineering department as the computing team kept on growing. There is more to the story, but flick forward to 18 years later and we have a teaching team the same size as the original cadre back in 1996 and merged into a construction, engineering and computing meta-department.

Do you see the almost full semi-circle nature of the current situation.
