re: How To Manage LinkedIn Endorsements
My impression is that my connections can endorse me multiple times for the same skill. If LinkedIn were simply able to catch those and not alert me about these "re-endorsements", that would be a great help on cutting down the emails they send me.

re: How To Manage LinkedIn Endorsements
I still have mixed feelings on LinkedIn endorsements. While I have been endorsed for skills I possess (which I appreciate), I have also been endorsed for things I don't do GǪ by people who would have no idea whether I possess those skills. Glad to know how to remove those now, thanks!

I've had a different experience. For example, my top endorsed skill is "blogging"... and I don't blog.

Thanks for researching this, Kristin. I've got a bunch of endorsements on my profile that came from way out of left field. Great to be appreciated, but getting endorsed for skills I actually possess would be a lot better.

Actually, I kind of like the endorsement feature. When people reach out to me I see their profiles and it encourages networking. In the scheme of things, recommendations from people you have worked with are a much better barometer of capabilities and skills.

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.
