Building non-technical skills

"..Being hard to contact and unresponsive seems to be a characteristic of the busy software industry. Simply being nice is refreshing"
Secrets of Successful Cross-Group Work

There are certain traits that IT professionals need to acquire & build to grow & succeed in their career. The Microsoft Certified Architect Program lists these non-technical competencies:

  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Organizational dynamics
  • Strategy

These competencies are relevant to other technical roles as well.

An interesting link on MSDN Success Builder appeared in a recent edition of MSDN (India) Flash newsletter. It contains freely downloadable material adapted from internal Microsoft resources & based on experiences of Microsoft employees on the following topics:

  • Project Management: Vision & Leadership
  • Project Management: Tactical Assistance
  • Communication & Team Dynamics
  • Professional & Personal Growth

There are several sub topics under each of the above. The few articles I read contained practical tips & made interesting reading.
