Managing Your Brand

If you weren't at our September meeting, you missed an excellent presentation by Dr. Joseph Rottman. He has conducted research and spoken internationally on global sourcing, innovation diffusion and public-sector IT. He has conducted case studies in over 40 firms and has been engaged by Fortune 500 firms to analyze and improve their offshore strategies. He has published three books and over 25 articles and book chapters. His publications have appeared in Sloan Management Review, MIS Quarterly Executive, Information Systems Frontiers, Strategic Outsourcing: An International Journal, IEEE Computer, the Journal of Information Technology, the American Review of Public Administration and Information and Management and leading practitioner outlets such as CIO Insight and the Cutter Consortium.

Key takeaways are:

  • Own Your Own
  • A brand is what you think and feel when you hear a name.
  • Brands are fragile.
  • Your mistakes, successes, skills, career, and network are the pieces that build your brand
  • Mistakes and successes are in the past. It is your skills and network that define who you are right now.
  • Everyone you've ever worked with who remembers who you are is your brand advertiser.
  • People remember how yo make them feel.
