One of my priorities in my new job was getting some cross-training happening, I have two people who are the only ones who really know what it is that they do. But between vacations and rush-jobs it hasn't been easy, so we've only just covered the tip of the iceberg so far.... and one of those two key people just gave his two week notice. This is going to end up being a clusterf***, as there is no way to get a full brain dump on all the little tweaks of what he does within two weeks, nor will we be able to replace him that quickly, nor are any of the other people as broadly competent as he is. Also I'm predicting some long days on my part as I try to master as much as possible of what he is doing, and then as I cover off a lot of it until we have him replaced.

(he was on vacation the first week I was here, so I'm pretty sure his departure is not my fault -- he must have been looking before we first met. And I think we've gotten along well. And technically he doesn't even report to me. But I still feel like I failed to head this off, somehow).
