Looking for a new role?

Information today Europe carries an interesting idea: in his blog entry for 5 August 2011, Stephen Cahill proposes a new career strategy, that of becoming an information coach.  He makes the point that, in an intensive and information-rich environment, many managers are finding it difficult to cope because they do not have the necessary skills to navigate the information space to find relevant information.  Information overload and the difficulties of identifying reliable sources combine to make the task problematic. “Being an information coach means that you need to help a decision maker establish exactly what the key, ‘ruin or success’ dimensions are for their part of the organisation and then build the scaffolding that supports their core needs”, writes Cahill, and goes on to pose five questions that one should ask of decision-makers in order to assist in building a coaching strategy.
