Job Justification

In the current trends, many of the tech workers are trying to justify their jobs. How would you go about it ?. It's not about the management review, it's about the daily performance that you put into to have your job justified.  Having interest in job is one thing and to justify is other as how much is good enough. You can always strive for better, but basic goals for the management  must be reached. In these economoy these goals may be  constantly moving on higher side.  Having current as well as future in the mind, you have to  decide where to put your focus.  I think that's important for your career.

Deliver product.
*What* the product is may vary (requirements specifications, design, actual code, etc), but at the end of the day, the only thing you should be measured by is what you have produced.

"Deliver product" is a good response.

However, if you work in a service/support role than you might want to look at other metrics as well.

I suggest you sit down with your boss and discuss this matter.
