People, service and results
My reputation rests on the expertise, and my ability to deliver effective, innovative solutions. That’s why i invest heavily in both, for example as to be member of PMI and ISACA, or following ITIL Foundation process.
Increasingly companies are finding that they require help with their IT systems at some stage, help which their existing in-house staff or suppliers cannot adequately provide.
Perhaps you require ad-hoc support to tackle a particularly complex technical problem – one that has already foxed other suppliers. Or maybe you need require an Interim senior manager for the duration of a major change program or project. Or perhaps you are looking for ongoing strategic direction and advice – needing access to more senior skills to address issues at the fringes of IT that don’t make sense to a standard “technology” company.
More often than not, you will be looking for someone who is used to operating right inside a business such as yours, working across internal teams, handling multiple external suppliers and tackling the everyday issues faced by your people and clients with discretion and sensitivity.
