  • SUCCESS FACTORS Always make yourself open to learning opportunities

    Communication is an N way street

    Others always have knowledge and experience to contribute

    Step out of your comfort zone (repeatedly)

    Know when to punt

    Draw on past experience

    Problems are rarely NEW

    Every customer THINKS they are uniqueBTW - Life doesnt really work this way.

    Success is not necessarily 180 degrees from failure. Success sometimes comes through (or darn close to) failure.

  • #1 - RAC POC (PROOF OF CONCEPT)

    The Maranatha Group, Inc.

    Thursday, February 25, 2010

  • #2 - EM ADOPTION

    Thursday, February 25, 2010

  • #3 - VENDOR MANAGEMENT

    Vendors are in fact your friends

    Leverage your possessions and desires vs their possessions and desires

    Mutual satisfaction is possible for everyone

    We have strong relationships with both Oracle and Dell

    We present with them at international conferences and participate in customer advisory boards

    They assist (far beyond typical front line support) in times of crisis and have a vested interest in our success

    They take our input and feedback on product usage from the field and where possible bake it into the product

    Thursday, February 25, 2010

  • #4 - TEAM MANAGEMENT

    This one is tricky

    I believe Im beginning to get better at utilizing my teams potential

    Enabling them to take responsibility and pride in their work

    Backing them up when things dont go well

    Using their skills and expertise to make our offerings more consistent, predictable and of higher quality

    Thursday, February 25, 2010

  • #5 - ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT

    Coordinating knowledge and effort within an organization for the mutual benefit of not only that organization but all of its members, customers, partners and beneficiaries.

    i.e we have many many brilliant people but we need to work as one to deliver a quality product

  • SOFTSKILLSInformation Management

    I seem to spend a considerable amount of time collecting, organizing and sharing information.

    Google searches are a gateway to, but not a substitute for, actually LEARNING something.

    Thursday, February 25, 2010

  • SOFTSKILLSCommunication

    Speaking AND Listening !!!

    Email

    Telephone

    Presentation

    Social Events

    The ability to express complex ideas in terms that everyone can grasp and understand is fundamental to IT success (as is the reverse ability to translate others ideas into terms that YOU understand).

    Look for opportunities to improve on these skills

    Thursday, February 25, 2010

  • SOFTSKILLSTeamWork

    In an ever more complex world it is rare that success of any venture ever rests on the shoulders of any one individual

    Smart companies recognize this and strive for truly team oriented individuals. These are not just buzzwords that companies like to throw around.

    No one person ever knows everything.

    Draw on the skills of those around you.

    Share your knowledge with everyone.
