Happy New Year everyone.

Ok till last month, I was working in a technical department and all of a sudden our tech director (who was working from last 20 years) resigned. So 20 years of knowledge gone in 3 weeks.

Technical team had development, design and IT support guys.

Now the management decided instead of hiring a new tech director they made commercial director our head and moved product managers and few marketing guys to our department. Now our department consists of developers, web architect, designers, IT support guys, marketing assistants, product managers, commercial director.

Now it's no more just technical team as we have marketing, commercial people in our department.So biggest dilemma facing us at the moment is what we call ourselves as a team. lol.

And the first rule is it can't include digital...
And that's the end of the rules

Any suggestions??
