Bridging the gap between GIS business and technical folk
April 17th, 2014 by Matt Sheehan
Most organization have two distinct camps; those on the technical side and those driving the deals, and planning the organizations future path. Contact and communication between each group is usually limited. Often each have their own jargon, acronyms, and reference points.
Those who can truly boast technical know-how with business acumen are a rare breed (fakers are a plenty). But make no mistake these are valuable people.
These are the folks who bridge the gap between each camp. Translators. These are the people who grasp good technical suggestions and ideas, and can translate them into successful business implementations.
Too often we see bad ideas being implemented, and good ideas ignored. Friction between groups. Having people who can bridge this gap is crucial for any successful business.
With brilliant people in harmony, the future possibilities are endless.
