It is hard to believe that another year has gone by already. No, not a calendar year, but for those of you familiar with Microsoft’s fiscal year, you know that our year runs July 1 – June 30. As such, we are now approaching the end of our fiscal year and once again entering into our annual review season. Whether you are a new follower or someone that I have had the pleasure to work with for some time, one thing you hopefully have seen from me is that I am very open about my goal to help increase the satisfaction of Microsoft partners around the world in working with Microsoft through things like: helping provide information of value and interest, providing correct answers to questions (even when they may not be the popular answers), helping address concerns and opportunities, directing you to relevant and important information, providing avenues for input into and out of Microsoft, connection opportunities with Microsoft, and much, much more. (In fact, I have this openly stated on my overview page about me) This year has been no exception.
During our annual review process at Microsoft, like many other places, we receive input and feedback from management and peers on how they perceive our level of performance over the past year. Given that my role has such a strong focus on working with and helping companies and individuals outside of Microsoft, like our Microsoft partners around the world, I am opening up the opportunity to all of you, the community I work with all year long, to provide input and feedback on my performance as part of my annual review because your input, feedback, and perceptions of how well I am performing my role are very important to me.
Here are answers to a few questions about the survey I figure some of you may have:
