I coached people through skill transitions, leadership transitions, and corporate management transitions.

Skill transitions include analyst, strategist, leader, and manager.

Leadership transitions include collaborator, coach, conceiver, and captain.

Management transitions include entry, junior, senior, director, VP, and CxO.

The more I help people through transitions, the more I see it as science than art.


Now, if I could just get the time to document the process. :-)

IT is a very interesting industry. Everytime IT acclimates a position in its ranks, it changes the position drastically. For instance, positions that were a combination of manager, leader, strategist, and analyst become IT-ized to becoming just a plain analysts. I've seen this happen with positions such as business analyst,  enterprise architect, business architect, program manager, project manager, consultant, and even manager.


If my manager is an analyst, then who is managing me?

To Melissa Ruth: why are employees not stakeholders?

To Paul Scheer:  Requirements gathering is hard. I recall doing this for a dental practice and it involved listening and asking questions then listening more

Hi there. I am new here.  As a freelance software contractor  I have to keep abreast of trends in the industry and, as I want to be more than a developer, and deal more with leading people and technology, I need to know a bit more about  business.  

What I can bring to the group is the view from the code-face in  a number of enterprises.  

For now here is  a link to my efforts to guess the likely trends for 2013.

One thing that cane up since I wrote that was the security holes in Java leading some to recommend abandoning it, and  an interesting article saying that Javascript  cryptographs is basically useless. I am still looking at the implications for my livelihood.

Hi all!!!  I'm new here and thought I would say hi.  My conversation starter today is:  

I sat at a local IT Day today sponsored by Lockheed Martin.  They brought up an interesting topic.  What is your driving factor for bringing new technology to your company?  

The focus group discussed the fact that one must carefully consider the use of funds to bring new technology to their company and compare it to the need and the cost savings that technology might provide.  They shared that employees and stakeholders will often focus on large cost for technology that is quickly rendered useless.  In this ever-changing field, this is a tough goal but a necessary one in my opinion.  What are your thoughts?

One final recommendation for today: I've long been a fan of and strongly recommend that community.  So, I'd also like to recommend that you check out their job board :

Thanks Vincent!  I have not done that yet.  I will certainly do so.

Quick question, Don:  Have you looked at the CIO Dashboard here on Linking IT? (There are hundreds upon hundreds of CIO's and CTO's with whom you may wish to network with via Twitter.)
