What are the attributes that separate high and low performers among IT staff? Rarely are they associated with technical skills.

Insightful presentation that triggers thoughts about the future of technology professionals in Higher Ed and beyond. In pursuing 'adding value' to respective organizations I see technology organizations moving toward architecting the streamline of business process and consult institutions in navigating through the ever-growing technology options.

Transactional -> Consultative -> Advisory -> Thought Leader, along curve of contribution vs. versatility #edu11 #e11_sess062

Technical skills was only 1 of 20 competencies important to job functions #edu11 #e11_sess062

Most important to credibility = making sure the trains run on time #edu11 #e11_sess062

Want to hear more about Tim Chester's "Technology Skills No Longer Matter" when he returns from #edu11 http://t.co/KIlCqkRo #E11_SESS062

RT @geofcorb: The things that made us successful in the past are not the ones that will make us successful in the future. #edu11 #e11_sess062

#E11_SESS062 #edu11 Timothy Chester says Technology Skills No Longer Matter... Is he right?

The fourth phase = advocacy and evangelism #edu11 #e11_sess062

#E11_SESS062 #edu11 As technology frees information, central organizations are no longer "necessary." They must adapt.

Two ends of the spectrum: transactional to thought leader #edu11 #e11_sess062

The things that made us successful in the past are not the ones that will make us successful in the future. #edu11 #e11_sess062

#E11_SESS062 #edu11 What got use "here" (skills for servers, networks, etc.) won't get us "there" (the future of educational technology)

RT @JulesAllenAtl: #E11_SESS062 #edu11 What got use "here" (skills for servers, networks, etc.) won't get us "there" (the future of educational technology)

Value of contributions, from important to transformative; need to manage both ends differently #edu11 #e11_sess062
