School's out for Summer
There is no doubt that progress is often for the better, change is like taxes and inevitable but sometimes we hark back to the 'good' old days, when we could Pick 'n' Mix at Woolworths, read a record sleeve and even the summers were, well, summery.
Remember when you needed to fill a gap in your short term resource needs with a skilled practitioner... who wasn't a contractor, and was like a staff person fitting in with members of your team. You may have paid a bit more but you had the flexibility of use - a week.... a month.... part-time and what's more the same resource could be there again for a few weeks, months or even years later, retaining the knowledge, the relationships, the training and the experience. A proper IT career person, just like your team.
One of our consultants, joined us 20 years ago as a graduate, once trained he went to work for one of our clients as a Junior Developer and for 15 years on and off undertook assignments with that client on the same and different systems. As he developed, the client recognised the value of continuity, Programmer, Analyst Programmer, Senior Analyst Programmer, Team Leader and finally as a Project Manager.
Every now and again, you might think to yourself, wouldn't it be good to have a choice - a Pick 'n' Mix so to speak, an ability to use resource in a different way, from a different source and even if its old school, why wouldn't it work for you?
