What does a CIT do?

I consult as what I call an experienced Creative Information Technologist(CIT).

Solving operations and management technology puzzles can be thought of as an art form and in my opinion, to do it well, one must be like an artist. A CIT is responsibile for looking at any given IT goal, routine or technological concept in different pespectives. This means positioning themselves for thinking outside, inside and as the box itself.

A CIT is like a sleuth and will go as fine-grained as necessary to find solutions using novel ideas. A CIT oftentimes works beyond his or her comfort zone, meaning areas outside their direct knowledge or experience and will be able to acquire expertise in those areas in an efficient manner. A CIT will be a fast learner with an entrepreneurial attitude.

Everything else can be attributed to ones personality.

Whether my role depends on specifically engineering a solution, taking responsibility for maintaining uninterruptible service, supporting internal initiatives or accomplishing goals that directly affect the ability of a company to compete or building a small home office. I help my clients achieve success by focusing on the goal, collaborating with stake holders and decision makers to bring forth resolutions.
