Five Tips to Brave the BYOD Boom

Picture this: You're an IT manager in the lucky position of staffing a new post within your organization. The rapid proliferation of consumer mobile tech in the workplace - the BYOD movement - has necessitated the creation of a job role to oversee mobile policies and tailor a support system: Mobile Device Manager. Rather than looking out, you're faced with, and up to, the challenge of reassigning existing personnel to the endeavor.


Where do you start? How do you pick the right person (or people) to fill the emerging need? How do you make selections that are fair, well reasoned, organized and play to the strengths of the team?


Download Info-Tech's IT Redeployment Shortlist Template and customize it to fit the requirements of business. The template helps with documenting a list of employees who best fit the position, including:

  • New role details - Job title; major responsibilities; relevant knowledge, skills and abilities
  • Candidates for redeployment - Employee name; current title; relevant knowledge, skills and abilities


No matter the need or role, use this template to support well-considered decisions when it comes to putting the right talent to work.

Good information.  As a consultant who specializes in this type of work, I would also suggest starting at where IT managers can find valid lists of major responsibilities for many types of IT positions.  Beats starting from scratch.
