About Me

TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2016) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Project Failures

Disclaimer: I have no idea who authored this blog, or which organizations website hosts the blog. 

As I read through the following article, I was faced with the classic introspection question: how does each of these apply to me?  http://calleam.com/WTPF/?page_id=2338

In the midst of some business process research I ran across this and it proved to be very interesting reading.  As a consultant, I participate in both sides of the sales process and on all sides and phases of project delivery.  I found comparing the failure attributes to projects in which I participated was very insightful.  Not every reason listed may apply to every project – but the level of detail and the implied attention to detail required of the consulting engineer is an excellent starting outline for necessary professional skills,and demonstrates the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience required to successfully deliver IT projects.

YMMV
