"Improving your soft skills can only benefit your career and help your organization ... if you're an individual IT professional who wants to improve your interpersonal skills, you can pitch the idea of a full-scale training program to your upper management, or you can attend a seminar series outside the company. You can also consider hiring a personal coach. While natural leadership skills are good, few [IT managers] can claim they have nothing to gain from some extra coaching."

-- Krissi Danielsson, freelance writer, covering IT careers

 

  Consulting  Return to Table of Contents

You need two things to succeed as an independent SAP consultant: You need a hot, niche skill, backed up by years of relevant, focused experience, and you need client references from multiple SAP projects.
