Every year, my team spends the month of June pretty much in hiding.  It’s not that we don’t like you, we just have to take some “us time.” Microsoft Ireland DPE

Our fiscal year ends on June 30th, so we spend June looking at how we’ve done for the year. 

  • Did we reach our goals? 
  • Did we run into challenges? 
  • Did we grow? 
  • Were we ambitious enough? 
  • Did we get the results we wanted for the time and money we invested? 
  • Were we able to change things proactively or did we just react?

Once we’ve done a pretty thorough job of evaluating how everything went, we start examining our goals for the next fiscal year, which started yesterday. 

  • What are our focus areas? 
  • Where are we going to invest time and money? 
  • What technology & products are coming down the line that we need to be ready for? 
  • Is there training we’ll need to do our jobs this year? 
  • In what areas can we really innovate and do things that will make the rest of the world sit up and notice the Irish tech community?

The sun is shining in Dublin, our reviews are done, and we’re full of ideas and plans for an exciting and challenging new year.  So, hi!  We’re back!
