Podcast Episode 11 – Let’s build the bridge?

Building the bridge? – one of the major reasons I am taken in to organisations is to help identify either a replacement software and/or service provider, but why? In this podcast episode I talk about one of the first things I try to do as an independent consultant to many OEM’s and manufacturers to reduce the pain and stress of making a change.

Before I do anything you have to look at the root of the problem – how do I get to the root, well I ask myself WHY? at least five times!

It may not seem that obvious to many, but the first thing I try to do is rather than replace an existing relationship, I look at how we can repair the existing one! In this episode I look at the three main areas where relationships fail and why as well as some of the irreconcilable differences that force a change of replacement despite my very best efforts. I also talk about the phrase I coined “Career Changing Decisions” and what this means and some anecdotal stories I have for you based on my experience.

Mike Ingledew

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
