In my many years in professional practice, I have learned that working professionally produces the best results. I have achieved my greatest successes with reliability, commitment, perseverance, a target and results-orientated approach and pragmatism.
My approach also involves excellent communication skills and emotional intelligence in managing people.
By using one of the leading methods for identifying a person's' personality, I have had great success at utilising employees correctly and finding professional new employees.
Matching personality profiles to job specifications helps in assessing whether an employee will be able to do the job he likes and wants to do, and whether he has the potential for further development.
If possible, I use Harrison Assessments in selecting my managers in putting together a powerful team. Feedback from employees is also very good about this method. It is well accepted by them.
PRINCE2 / ITIL
The successful management of projects requires a great deal of experience that you cannot learn. However, you can learn the most important requirement: a method that delivers the “toolbox” for project management, enabling you to achieve your project goals.
However, dogmatic adherence to methodological guidelines is not called for, rather, FJUM offers the necessary pragmatism to utilise the tools needed to achieve success in every situation.
The core element of successful IT management is the adequate provision of IT services.
It's not worth re-inventing the wheel every time. In contrast, I make use of the experiences documented in the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) that can be summarised as “best practices”.
As a manager working under time pressure to deliver results, I like working methodically, without losing the necessary flexibility and I frequently use solutions that have proved themselves in practice. It's not necessary to reinvent the wheel every time.
