Nothing Could be Better..Or Could It?
Are you thinking about launching into a BI project soon? If so, I’d like to share a brief discussion I had last week with the BI team here at Chamonix. Essentially it revolved around a few things you should consider when hunting for the right team for your BI project.
In short your team should really be made up of a blend of generalists and technology specialists, with the weighting of each governed by the size and complexity of the project. Furthermore, it’s probably a good idea to lead with the generalists. Why? Well, in our experience the generalists are able to understand and add value across the entire end-to-end scope of the BI project (which is invariably more complicated than originally thought). From an holistic point of view, their experience and ability to join the dots between business strategy and technical implementation means “they just get it”.
Having defined the “what” (using your generalists) you can now define, and build, the “how” (using your technology specialists).
So what does a BI generalist look like?

The Art of Giving Gifts
by Cymbeline Refalda-Villamin
Many have perfected their system of giving gifts during the holiday
season to corporate partners, benefactors, beneficiaries, and clients.
Secretaries and executive assistants make lists and check them twice,
then shop for items as early as October-November,taking advantage
of mail promos, trade fairs and bazaars where picture frames,wall and
alarm clocks, desk organizers, rice cookers, e-kettles and other gene-
ric give-aways can be bought inbulk at low prices. This is sound econo-
my for the budget-consciuos, a worldly wisdom indeed for our materia-
Well thought-of Gifts
Few dare to struggle with the art of gift-giving because this is more
mandig in terms of time,treasures, and talent. As giver of gifts, the ar-
tist-giver must know well the recipient in order to identify the right
gift that would bring true joy and not just a split-second high. But just
don't get me wrong. I received one of those so-called generic gifts, an
e-kettle durin my last Christmas party at the office (in 2008, when I
was diagnosed with cancer) and I really value it. But the pink journal
given by my friend Ysabel where I wrote random thoughts was really
more significant that whenever I go back to read, it seems I am always
encountering a new person.By the way,Ysabel is the artist-giver who
also gave me a laptop, a digicam, a wooden spoon, cookie sheets, cake
decorator. The Reader (book and DVD). Poets & Writer's mags, cash in
times of poverty, and most of all, faithful friendship to last a lifetime.
