Why my course is useful
Buying and installing a piece of software, or making an individual map, is not the definition of a functioning GIS anymore with the advent of cloud computing and web services. This class conveys how enterprise applications must consider more than out of the box Esri tools and must look at integration opportunities with other software applications and other stakeholders.
Why I built it
I built it for the same reason I started my own consulting company. I could see that so much time is wasted in poor decisions about software choices, procedures, and staff responsibilities. I decided I would have more liberty to offer a voice with a practical approach. And this voice has materialized in this class to teach practically and candidly about best GIS management practices.
What I hope for you
Don’t walk out of a GIS meeting unless everyone knows what they need to do and when it should be accomplished. Part of this is a cultural shift in your team dynamics. If you have this, then you can seek and handle technical integration challenges. The second part of my mindset is be proactive to find good work to do and design a way to make it happen. Get out of the cube!
