Fellow Network Manager[s]
Things have changed here of late and I have been asked to identify a fellow Network Manager/Fellow Network Managers who will be contactable when we have an issue which is proving to be a little knotty and reluctant to go away. I have informed senior staff that I am a member of this [and a few other IT forums] but i think that they feel that this is not sufficient as they want the contact to be a litttle more familiar [?] with our setup so that ideas can be exchanged more readily. A reciprocal arrangement is expected [where I can be contacted if there are issues at your site]
Until a couple of years ago I used to regularly attend an informal session once a week at the headquarters of our support company but they have retrenced and are now concentrating on training [mostly for teachers]
So here are my questions:
Does anyone else do this?
Does anyone know of anything similar going on somewhere? If so where?
I have to show some movement of this issue by the end of the holiday otherwise I will miss one of my targets [some missed already :(]
Any ideas gratefully recieved.
