Re: CDO turf
StaceyE, key here is to also not to lose sight of the bigger picture and not to lose sight of the current tasks in hand in the curiousity of learning new things.

@ Waqas

I absolutely agree with you adaptability and consistency are key to success. One must always be open to new learning opportunities and be willing to try new approaches to the way things are done.

Re: CDO turf
StaceyE, but this is how one has to operate and learn how to be flexible when learning diverse areas. How to keep a balance between adaptibility (being open to learning diverse opportunities) and consistency (working continuously on the core area without being distracted to other areas principally) is the key.

Re: CDO turf
Good point. Even if its impossible to be prepared for every scenario, if you understand that anything can happen than you are ahead of the game. Expecting it and understanding it can happen are half the battle. The other half is how you handle the unexpectd when it really finally happens.

Re: CDO turf
You're right, knowledge is power. While it is challenging to stay hip to the new technology it is important to at least try.

@Waqas

Very good point! When you are accustomed to doing something one way it is difficult to scrap what you have been doing and start using another process.

Re: CDO turf
Batye, well not all companies' boards are ignorant about human resources side of the company. They want staff that is competant and willing to learn new stuff. A staff that expects diverse learning opportunities usually remains motivated.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
