So a few days ago I was assigned to design the architecture for a small feature, which I presented to the team on a meeting. During that meeting, a colleague of mine implied that he was directly involved with crafting the design which wasn’t the case indeed. How would you guys handle this? Personally, I believe just for a single case it doesn’t make it a reason to address it, but if it gets repeated it might need some careful consideration.
First, I would assume good intent:
If you're very sure none of these ring true and there's some bad intent there, you could bring it up with your manager. Otherwise, you could do the "wait and see" approach to see if it's repeated - I'm personally leaning towards this one as a confrontation here would be very awkward.
I hope these other threads help as well:
