As VP of AllTechComm I will find that my job will have many tasks to accomplish in order to make this company a great success. As VP I will need to make sure that I do all that will be expected of me I will need to start by making sure that I am responsible for leading all technology related issues with our group/company and any all hardware related issues’. Examples of this would be software, and web applications, reservations systems, database management and all tech support that will be needed for our company. (“Vice President of Technology”, 2009,)
With this job I will also be responsible for many other tasks within the company.
• Direct IT staff
• Working with marketing dept for website enhancements examples of this would be improving customer support.
• Direct operation and management of our IT dept, examples data network, business applications, websites.
• And over see employees
These are just a few of the job details that I as a VP will have to be responsible for, I will also need to look at the short and long term goals of planning this all out in order to be successful with this company.
Most of us will generally rely on long term goals rather than short term goals within the company, In order for the VP to be successful I will need to apply both long and short term goals of planning. If I think of only long term planning then I would be setting myself up for only optimal results. So it is my goal to bring in both ways of thinking short and long term planning.
If I rely on the short term planning then this would only bring in what is to done on a daily basis like making sure that the bills get paid, and that everyone showed up for work, so I need to bring in a different method of thinking in order to keep this company in good running condition so I will spend most of my time on long term planning, as I said short term planning is “ok” for daily management of the company but we need to take the company to bigger and better goals of planning so I will concentrate more on long term planning.
Working toward our long-term plan every day gives meaning to those daily activities. It’s also important to build momentum toward that long-term plan so you feel PULLED by it as it becomes more real every day. The more you feel pulled toward your calling, the less you’ll have to push, and pushing is much harder work. (Godwin, MFCC, 1999-2009,)
As the VP of AllTechComm this will be one of my most challenging tasks by thinking of long term planning I will need to do some strategic planning by making our company’s assess its current situation, and by redefine our companies mission and decide what we want our company to look like in say 2 to 3 years down the road.
I will also seek to identify how to take advantage of our companies’ strengths, and eliminate and or reduce any and all of our weaknesses and try to capitalize on the opportunities and trends and make the right decisions to keep our company going in the right direction.
We must also consider all factors like new technology, new markets and change spending habits within the company and we need to ask questions on how we can improve technologies, which could benefit our company.
