IT Competencies revisited

I recently came across Mike Schaffner’s amazing blog, chock-full of Business and IT wisdom which he dispenses in a down to earth style that’s easy to read and understand. This true Pai Mei IT guy had words of wisdom in the area of IT competencies and skills which made re-think about my Building an IT Team post and (Successful) IT People’s Characteristics post.

In Critical Skills and Competencies for IT employees, Mike breaks it down into simpler parts and much easier to follow. Definitely keep it in mind as you go about building your own IT (or Project) team that will bring you fantastic success. If you think hard about it, the qualities identified as competencies are like personal characteristics important to any high-performing team. The one I like and often not have enough of is sense of humor/positive outlook in things.

On that front, no matter how bad things can get in the IT shop, sing or hum these two tunes (“official” IT theme songs) 😉 …

…and be cheered! 🙂
