Being At The Table
Here's what being at the table means.
Whenever a company modifies its strategy, it affects every current employee and the company's future hiring needs. Who's at the meetings discussing strategic change?
- engineering to describe the technology challenges of the strategy shift.
- marketing & sales describing how to ensure market acceptance.
- operations describing how the product will be produced and delivered.
- finance & accounting to figure out how to justify & finance the project.
Someone should be also there from HR / Recruiting, trying to figure out how to staff the program and redeploy the company's current workforce.
If you're not invited, find a way in. Then contribute. That's how you get invited the next time.
