Become a GIS Rock Star by changing your approach to deliver a mapping platform and expertise to your organization and increase your worth/relevance. GIS managers / coordinators need to become more consultative and entrepreneurial in their approach to deploying GIS in their organization. They need to embrace an approach that:
• Engages business units directly, focusing on understanding and improving their workflows;
• Rapidly deploys solutions to identified needs, with delivery in days, not weeks or months;
• Configures the existing platform first, minimizing customizations;
• Delivers and maintains enabling infrastructure for mapping across their organization;
• Enables everyone in their organization to easily discover, use, make and share maps on any device, at any time, in any place
