I'm getting major pushback from my boss against weekly 03s. He says that in concept it's nice that I'm doing them weekly.

BUT -- he doesn't do weekly 03s himself because we all have real jobs to do. He's trying to get me to switch to monthly.

Any advice?

Bit of clarity please.  Do you mean he is trying to stop you having weeklys with YOUR directs?

 Yes, that's correct. He says that I'm spending too much time with my directs and should instead be doing other things.

Ultimately you have to do what you are told, if he is insisting you stop, then you will have to.  

There is actually a cast, or mention of this topic within a cast.  Mark talked about how he would try and continue doing them under the radar.  Hopefully somebody can chip in and point you in the direction of it.

I remember that comment, too. Wasn't that on a recent conference call?

Looking back at the Winter 2012 licensee call, Question #19 was about a boss and his boss thinking that MT methods take too much time. 

I recall the answer is similar to what Mark said. Continue under the radar and call them something else, like "update". 

Hope this helps,

Phil
