By Ella Koscik

To transform a business from merely successful to standout, a leader requires a 360-degree perspective. That entails looking beyond the office door, picking up cues from the economy, the market, the business community and the competitive landscape. It means asking the right questions and seeking answers from a variety of sources inside and outside the company. In my experience, achieving business success is based on balancing three critical elements: knowledge, intuition and execution. Read more

How to Prepare for and Ace a Phone Interview

Categories:Articles & White Papers, MDI Publications

As the competitive nature of the IT industry continues to grow, phone interviews are becoming increasingly popular amongst employers as the initial step in the hiring process. This initial step allows hiring managers to speed up the hiring process by weeding out potential job candidates without having the expense and time of an in person interview.  On average, our technical recruiters screen hundreds of qualified candidates throughout the week and it is essential that candidates set themselves apart in order to advance in the hiring process. According to Business Insider, “More job candidates make initial contact with prospective employers via the telephone and the first 15 seconds either make or break the interview.” Job seekers should prepare by thoroughly researching the company and position before the phone call, showing their interest and willingness to learn will make a lasting impression on the interviewer and bring potential candidates one step closer to landing the coveted new job. Follow MDI Group’s tips below to ensure that you ace your next phone interview! Read more

2015 IT Budget Forecast: Top 5 Areas for Increased Spending

Categories:Articles & White Papers

As budget plans for 2015 develop, IT leaders are striving to make other departments of their organizations aware of new technologies that can improve business processes and bring in new customers. As the economy continues to improve, CIOs are also optimistic that business leaders will support innovation in addition to just keeping the lights on.

Computerworld’s Annual Forecast Survey of IT Executives shows that IT budgets are indeed continuing to grow, as 43% of the 194 respondents expect to increase spending in 2015. That’s up from 36% in last year’s study. This year’s average anticipated uptick is 13.1%, and overall, the expected changes in IT budgets reported by all respondents average out to 4.3%. IT is expected to again kick up spending on security tools, customer-facing technologies and information exchange/collaboration technologies that comprise the so-called SMAC stack — social and mobile tools, analytic systems and cloud computing. Meanwhile, it’s likely that hardware spending will continue to drop and services budgets will continue to rise. Read more

The Power of “Re:” Lessons in Strategic Leadership

Categories:Articles & White Papers

Leaders should always be evaluating the way things are done and looking for ways to do them better. When we were kids, we called it a “do over”; as serious adults, we need more syllables.

I am happy to share a few lessons learned from the experiences I’ve had taking a proactive approach to what is essentially an opportunity to reenergize an organization.
