I have been working on a letter of interest for a very large grant. My boss had actually asked me to contact a certain provider to solicit their interest. The issue is, the provider wants an idea that is original overall (that has not been duplicate in any research journal from any national database). Well, I created a hypothesis of income recovery (can't be specific-competitive world - hope you understand). After all these weeks of email updates and word-ins, I just started a quick breezeway meeting with my boss. I told her that I wanted her input because the turn-in deadline is tomorrow. She said that she wanted to hold off because she wanted another statistical research (that's already been done nationally, but not internally). She said that she thinks my hypothesis is about why people default. I had to restate my hypothesis, which was totally different. This proves to me that she has not been reading anything I've been sending to her. We will be missing tomorrow's deadline!!!!!
What could I have done to prevent this without being a pester to my boss?
