Steps Towards PIM™

6 Steps Towards Professional Interface Management™ 

The great thing is that the process towards PIM™ allows you to create and draft one or more visual prototypes of your desired professional positioning. Here are the most relevant steps one should  take: 

1. Reflect  What type of industry do I want to be in? Research always comes before development. Gain new insights about the external environment and get a strong focus on personal assessment. Only few of us detect what stands between us and success. You need to know your constraints to be creatively effective. 

2. Reframe Where do new professional and personal insights match and offer new opportunities? An “insight” is a clear and sudden understanding in a very complex situation. The quality of your analytical thinking will let you find new insights in markets and opportunities, but the quality of your emotional thinking will let you find new insights into your personality. 

3. Create After research, insights, and a new vision, there comes development. You will need to develop a concrete and clearly defined action plan. Here design thinking comes into the game. Designers develop fast and simple prototypes to gain real feedback and optimize on the way (a proven way to increase speed to market and study viability and feasibility). 

4. Grow The best thing of all is that, while we are doing this, we keep growing especially on a personal level. This new professional vision is the key driver of human development. After all, this is what gets us so excited. 

5. Differentiate As long as you understand Aristotle’s system of thinking in boxes, you understand that clearly defined positioning helps peers to see a certain professional difference. This will take time and persistence. Professional substance and proofs are the keys to success, and the humble but authentic communication is decisive and help you to gain new clients and collaborators. Keep in mind that the product is the key. 

6. Go Thinking without doing doesn't make any sense. Now, you invested three month and little resources in developing and prototyping a new professional scenario. You gained new insights in volatile and fast-changing markets as well as and most important, into yourself. You now have a clear action plan and you know what you need to change, learn, or add to your personality to make your product and services worth your clients money. This is creative personal branding – your strategy springs out of your personality. Do this process, evaluate where you are, and enjoy it. You will find yourself driven by priorities. You will also have stress in your life, but positive stress is the fuel for success.

Strategic Management

Strategic Management

We are very proud to deliver the only short course on strategic management available in Ireland. This course has been designed to be delivered in house and is specifically tailored for the Irish multi national IDA high value manufacturing and services sector. The programme is delivered over 20 hours as an integrated format over modules decided by the client. Strategy only works when everyone is on the same page and for this reason we offer this programme for each management forum to take advantage of this unique opportunity. It is fundamental knowledge that companies that have a strong foundation and understanding of strategy and how it shapes future sustainable success are the business units that achieve prolonged success within the greater company structure. Simply put, the business unit that talks the language of the CEO attracts the greatest interest and capital input. Success is always built on strategy. See a sample of our strategic training work.
