Keep up to date

As we move through our careers it's very easy to get funneled down a track and before you know it you're not where you want to be.

Regardless of your company and their performance management cycle keep your focus. Develop your personal roadmap of where you want to be in 6 months, 1 year, 3 years and beyond.

I have found that I have become stale quickly working as a solution agnostic Business Analyst. I need to get and keep current with technology as well.

I decided that one asset I would like to build out is Microsoft Dynamics CRM experience. A quick walk around he web and I stumbled across the Wellington MS CRM 4.0 user group.

Don't forget to keep plugged in to existing skills and build out hooks into new skills that you have identified.

Tools at your finger tips:

  • Google Alerts
  • Podcasts
  • User Groups (physical and online)
  • White Papers available from vendors, distributors (TelecomAsia) and bodies (NGOSS, IIBA)

Many executives who initially think they need a management consultant ultimately decide to deploy an manager. A recent survey of 100 senior directors in UK companies showed that 78% felt that interim managers offer clear advantages over management consultants.
