One of my new 2016 presentations is called “How To Be A Better Performance Specialist” – though I really could use a snappier title.
Here’s the abstract:
I’ve spent 30 years doing Performance and Capacity. You’d think it’d seem stale and repetitive by now. Not a bit of it. It’s still fresh and interesting.
More to the point I think I’m doing it better day by day, even now. So I’d like to share some thoughts on how you too can become more valuable to your organisation as a Performance Specialist. And how you can have fun doing it.
Now, who on earth am I to be telling people how to do their jobs better? Particularly as I’ve never worked as a customer Performance Specialist.
I think there are two things going for me:
- I’ve spent 30 years doing Performance and Capacity" says I might’ve worked with a fair few customers. Just a few. 🙂
- I already have plenty of topics for this presentation.
- It’s highly likely I’ll be doing quite a bit of mentoring over the next few months.
Except that’s three. 🙂
Anyhow, I’m casting my mind in the direction of “higher level” messages. It’ll pass and normal service will be resumed shortly. 🙂
But until it does I have a few slides to write…
