My office spend over one year "moving to a new building". We went so far as to sign a lease, make major changes to the new building, buying all new IT equipment to ensure that connectivity was not an issue, and bought all new office equipment. Over all, we spent more than $10M on the move. Then it was announced that we would not move after all, and all of the people we hired in anticipation of having the OFFICE SPACE to house them were fired! Good Luck Tina!
Manager is foxy, moving the company is complicated thing, if you want to do it properly, I think he knows that, devil man, by giving the responsibility somebody else he may hope get rid of burden. But, she shall be failed either, however, the manager could have been thinking her expendable.
On the other hand if the number of these foxy managers is much in a company, it does not take long the company to go down.
