29. How Do I Get to the Next Level in My Career?

May 18, 2018


It is relatively easy to map out a career progression for a technical resource. It is a different kettle of fish to do the same for an IT Leader in a mid-sized organisation. A panel of IT leaders pours out their hearts on the following questions:

  • Is an MBA the only option to make the jump into the management suite?
  • What about formal short-courses, online learning or just-in-time internet research?
  • Should you get yourself a mentor or coach?
  • Does peer-coaching provide lasting value?
  • Or is maybe job-hopping to break through a glass ceiling a viable alternative?
  • How should I plan and map out my next steps?
