Hopefully, the holidays are a time of rest, relaxation, and recharging for you. However, with the end of the year just around the corner, the holidays are also the perfect time to consider reviewing and recruiting. This is an excellent time to look at all those IT projects that your team worked on during the year and review obstacles and victories to understand how you can continue to improve your well-oiled machine.
As part of your review, you should consider the following thoughts:
- Successful Implementations — Take note of the projects, big and small, your IT team was able to execute well. Did you acknowledge them and compliment their efforts? If not, this is the right time to extend warm appreciation for their hard work.
- Team Adjustments — As you review your projects from the year, also review the shortcomings within your team. Can you overcome those problems through training and mentorship, or do you need to consider augmenting or replacing members of your team?
- Growth and Vision Forward — Finally, look to the projects you have planned for the upcoming year. Will you need new teammates? This is the right time to recruit IT professionals that are wrapping up projects and can act as secondary options when projects go awry.
Give yourself a head start on 2017 by reinforcing your IT development team with readily available talent. Just like a well-oiled machine, parts need to be inspected and repaired or replaced in order to continue having a reliable, dependable source for success.
