On Sept 1st I complete 32 years in top notch industries starting as Asst Engineer grew into Engineering Executive, Consultant Designer, R&D Head, Chief of Operations and R&D (Dr V Krishna Murthy trustee of RGF), then as Product Manager, System Architect, and now as ED.
Someone (irrespective of sector) if he is too busy for everything, all the time, it means either he doesn't know his job or doesn't know to manage it.
I come across so many who hide behind this "I am too busy" from their reportees, from their peers and superiors. If you are a manager find a balance or bosses will have to find some balanced person. In days of mobile phones, you cannot have pagers.
