Get ahead of the curve: The most important hiring requirements for AWS talent

It feels like we spent the majority of 2020 and 2021 discussing ‘unprecedented Times’. But, there is no escaping the fact that hiring is a real challenge for companies in the current ecosystem.
Due to a combination of skills shortages as well as a competitive talent market, employees find themselves in a unique position whereby they can demand flexible work-perks that suit their changing working habits and new lifestyles. They also have many other options if they feel they don’t have any opportunities with their current or potential employer.
Organizations need to understand the needs of AWS professionals in order to stand out from their competition when they are looking for new talent. While most employees are motivated by money, it is not impossible to see how the culture and work strategies of a company can be equally attractive to potential candidates. The Jefferson Frank Careers and Hiring Guide AWS Edition is a great way to get to grips about what really matters.
It’s a comprehensive study of the AWS community, compiled from responses from nearly 48,000 data points and nearly AWS professionals worldwide. This is not a general survey of tech workers, it’s the experts that work directly with your digital infrastructure.
It provides a comprehensive overview of the current landscape, which includes platform trends and job satisfaction. This is a valuable resource for both employers and employees. It’s a great way to learn about the personalities of AWS professionals and to make sure that you are able to stand out to potential employees. It’s a way for candidates to compare what their employer offers and how they can make you more valuable as AWS specialists.
The Careers and Hiring Guide can be used by anyone, regardless of their position in the AWS community. It provides valuable information about the trends in hiring.
Let’s begin with the bad news. The bottom line is hard to ignore: employees will always see the dollar amount on their paychecks as a clear indication of the company’s value to them. To succeed, you must meet these expectations not only to attract but also to keep talent. While it may save you a few pennies, you will end up spending more money if other companies take the talent.
Money matters. According to this year’s guide 58% of respondents have negotiated pay increases on their own. 45% of respondents cite a pay increase as a motivator to obtain AWS certifications. The most popular reason employees consider changing jobs is a lack of higher earnings. This is not a new concept, but it’s important that employees feel valued and are more productive if they feel valued.
This goes beyond money. There are many other reasons candidates will be interested in the job. Work needs to be valued, opinions must be heard, and your workforce deserves respect. It will help you to set the standard for a happy team and give you an edge in hiring and retaining the best employees.
Do you think you have what it takes for AWS talent? Use our candidate search tool to locate thousands of pre-approved professionals, no matter where they are located.
Let’s get started! Many employees felt the pandemic was a disaster.

Gantt Chart Inspo: Holiday Event Planning, Griswold-Style

I don’t know if you’re aware, but this time of the year, my calendar is filled with family gatherings, parties, and office celebrations.
You have a lot of details to manage if organizing an event is on the holiday to-do-list. We thought we would show you how to organize an event in TeamGantt, with a little inspiration from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
Use a gantt charts to plan your holiday event
The Griswold family Christmas is the most iconic holiday gathering. Clark’s holiday goals are a great example of the benefits of a Gantt Chart.
Imagine how things would have turned out if Clark had taken the time to plan his family’s holiday. This might have been his gantt chart:
Let’s take a look at the components of the gantt chart and see how we can apply these tips to our holiday event planning.
Decorations and setup for an event
Glimmering lights and the scent of fresh pine are two things that inspire a festive spirit. The Griswolds are a delight!
This example shows how we divided the Decorations task group into two subgroups. It makes it easy to scan through the to-do list. To highlight key events in your gantt chart, milestones can be used.
The Griswolds might have had a more successful hunt for the perfect tree if they had taken the time to create a quick supply list. It’s easy with TeamGantt’s handy checklist feature!
Activities and entertainment
You want to give your guests the chance to have some holiday fun? You can track everything in a gantt charts, whether you are setting up a gingerbread house or booking musicians for your event.
Here’s how Clark might be able to find his family’s old-fashioned fun:
You can add milestones to help you make important decisions and get approvals. You can also add any unforeseen tasks or events to your plan in case they arise.
Assignments for rooms
A gantt chart is a great way to track room assignments and holiday fun if you can’t keep it in one room.
This idea was given a try by the Griswolds, who added a Guest Accommodations task team. This way, everyone is on the same page (though not necessarily happy) about sleeping arrangements and lengths of stay.
Menu planning
Food and drink are the foundation of any holiday party. Make a list of holiday menu items and assign each dish to a task.
You can either make the menu yourself or invite your friends, family, and coworkers to sign up for a dish.
List out all the ingredients that you will need to make your holiday dish. Use TeamGantt’s mobile application to check your grocery list while you shop!

Four Ways Dishonesty Holds You Back in Business

Honesty in business can be hard to find.
Businesses topple due to dishonesty. Dishonesty can cause financial ruin. Dishonesty can cause business relationships to be strained.
We understand the problem. We know the problem. Consulting firms coach businesses to be more ethical and honest. Business schools offer classes on business ethics to reduce the spread of dishonesty that can cripple organizations and businesses.
Much of business suffers from epidemic dishonesty.Dishonesty can ruin both businesses and individuals, producing a mess that takes generations to recover from. This article will warn you about dishonesty and show you how it can hurt your business.
What is dishonesty?
Any assertion of falsehood is dishonesty. It can take many forms and manifestations.
This breach of ethics can often be seen at an organizational level, where entire businesses support, condone, or encourage coverups, falsification, and fact-twisting. Dishonesty can also be described as personal misrepresentation. It can include outright lies, skewing facts and failure to communicate the truth.
Since ancient times, honesty has been viewed as a virtue and dishonesty as a trait. The Judeo-Christian Ten Commandments give a prominent place to honesty, with the well-known statement “You shall not bear false testimony” (Exodus 20.16).
No matter what one’s cultural background or religious beliefs, we all know that dishonesty can be harmful.
It is time to practice business ethics that align with our core values.
The Tragedy of Dishonesty
Dishonesty can lead to disaster. Sometimes, such disasters can be avoided. Sometimes dishonesty can cause only minor ripples. However, dishonesty can cause some collateral damage, such as a unfulfilled life, high levels stress and not being able attain satisfaction.
The dishonesty can spread to all corners of the family, including business associates and the general public. Many people hear about and are affected by one person’s dishonesty.
Here are some of these tragic consequences of dishonesty.
1. Dishonesty can create a false persona.
Dishonesty is a way to make yourself appear to be someone else.
It is very difficult to live a life that is not yours. It can cause severe anxiety and psychological problems as well as a general feeling of mistrust. People find it difficult to trust people who appear artificial.
In this 1 Peter 3:12-12 statement, the Bible clearly links honesty and well-being.
If you desire to love life and see the good in it, you must be honest. False identity can lead to alienation from loved ones and friends. A life of falsehood eventually leads to your separation from yourself.
2. Complexity is the result of dishonesty.
Lies beget lies. To validate a lie you’ve told, you must tell another lie. To make the lie seem plausible, you must tell two more lies. To make these lies more convincing, you must tell more lies.
These webs of deception are impossible to manage, no matter your intelligence. Things can quickly get complicated in the business world. It’s difficult to verify all your falsehoods or corroborate your lies, from paper trails to emails.
Dishonesty is the best way to plunge your life in a spiral of darkness and terror.
3. A business can be destroyed by dishonesty.
This is what Edson Spencer, former chairman of Honeywell Inc., said.
He’s right. Expedited

Five essential steps for your AWS migration plan

IT environments are more complex and larger than ever before. A strategic approach is required to migrate IT assets and operations from existing IT environments to AWS.
Cloud customers must consider their licensing and existing infrastructure as well as their business drivers for migration. It is equally important to find an AWS partner who understands your business.
There is no one-size-fits all migration strategy. However, it is important to assess your readiness and to implement key procedures to ensure a smooth transition to cloud computing.
Rebura is a top AWS Consulting Partner and has helped many organizations move to the cloud. We have identified five core best practices in cloud migration that should be the foundation of any AWS migration strategy.
Let’s take a closer look at these steps to see how they fit in the overall picture.
#1 Define your business driversFirst, decide what you want from AWS cloud. This could be digital transformation, reduced operational cost, or increased productivity.
Depending on the stage of your business, the drivers for migration might include:
Increased business agility
Operational resilience and enhanced security
Innovation is faster and time to market is shorter
Cost savings
Operational resilience
App development and new technologies
Consolidation of datacenters
Productivity increases
Faster disaster recovery
Collaboration and work performance between teams has been improved

#2 Assess your current licensing situationConsider your licensing situation, too. Many software companies won’t allow users move their licenses from the on-premises to cloud. Publishers may restrict software use in certain areas. Failure to comply could result in heavy fines.
Licensing can take up a significant portion of your IT budget. No business can afford to spend money on something they don’t use or need. An AWS Optimization and Licensing Analysis (OLA), can help make a big difference.
AWS OLAs include a free assessment of your existing on-premise or cloud infrastructure and custom recommendations. The assessment will reveal exactly how much resources you are using for each type and what services you require, as well as the best ways to reduce costs. These insights will help you reduce licensing costs and improve your business efficiency.
The program allows users to create a migration proof of concept and simulate different scenarios. This allows them to calculate the cost of moving their licenses to the cloud, or switching to new services, and to identify savings opportunities.
#3 Understanding the AWS shared Responsibility ModelAWS uses a shared responsability model that means both AWS customers and AWS are jointly responsible for security compliance in the cloud.
Source: AWS
AWS protects the global infrastructure that supports it, and ensures the cloud environment is secure. This infrastructure includes software, hardware, as well as networking applications.
Security in the cloud is the responsibility of the user. It is up to you to take the necessary steps to secure your data, grant user permissions, and protect your workloads from malware and other forms of cybercrime.
#4 Work with an AWS certified partner
AWS partners go through extensive training and pass an exam to get their certification. They are familiar with all aspects of cloud migration, including workload placement, infrastructure performance, and cost estimates.
A single point of contact makes it easier to manage your cloud business operations and avoid technical issues.
#5 Establish post-migration performance metrics. Finally, ensure you have measurable success criteria to support your post-migration analysis. Establish cloud performa

9 Signs that Project Management is Your True Calling

Do you love what your do? Or do you do it to make a living doing what you love.
For many years, I was part of the second group. Selling toothpaste, dog food, or pharmaceuticals is something that I don’t feel passionate about. It was a job. It allowed me to live comfortably, so I could enjoy my leisure time after work and pay for my lifestyle. I enjoyed what I did, and I was skilled at it. But I wasn’t passionate about it.
Now, I love to write! I can do it anywhere! I meet the most amazing people. I am constantly learning new things and often find my fingers dancing on the keyboard long after the sun has set. I am sad when I have to close the computer for the night.
What about you? Do you set a goal to get through each day? Do you feel like you can just get through the day? Congratulations if you can identify with any of these traits! You’ve found your calling as a project manager.
1) You are a detail-oriented person who loves to get down to the details but can also rise above them.
You are comfortable inviting the devil to your party, even though he may be in the details. You enjoy understanding every detail and laying the foundation for your project. You aren’t afraid to get the buy-in of key players. It is no problem to ensure that everyone on your team understands their roles and the scope of the project. You enjoy tracking your projects and creating metrics to measure success. You enjoy setting goals and seeing them achieve their goals. You are a stickler for budget targets and make sure that every industry regulation is met. You will feel happier if you have more graphs and charts. You create your project with actionable data and enjoy crossing off each box on your list. Knowing that every successful element is bringing you closer to a rewarding project result will help you.
You also know when to delegate or coordinate these details to other members of your team. You are the conductor of this orchestra. You can’t focus all your attention on the sheet music for the flute solo.
2) You are a master communicator.
Communication is an essential part of any project. You are a natural communicator who can keep everyone informed, create a communication plan, stick to it, and alleviate fears and frustrations. Project management is best for people who communicate clearly and with an honest voice. If you make status reports second nature and give everyone all the information they need to make decisions, no one will be surprised or feel that their efforts have been wasted.
3) Don’t over-plan without complicating.
We all know that nothing goes according to plan. Even if everything goes according to plan, it’s rare that a project is completed on time and within budget. If you can see and anticipate problems, and have plans in place to fix them, you will be able to cover your team when the stars don’t align. This could mean that you need to create additional documentation for stakeholders in order to plan for unexpected events. You don’t want people to be overwhelmed by unnecessary paperwork. You’ve reached the sweet spot in project management preparedness when you can provide just enough protection without being too generous.
4) You enjoy building a team that is uniquely qualified to achieve your project’s goals.
You are responsible for assembling a team that will achieve your project goals. You have the ability to evaluate each person’s capabilities and place them in the best position for success. You must create an environment that fosters trust and encourages sharing. You must be constantly reviewing how you communicate so that you don’t slip up.

9 Project Controls and How to Use Them To Tame Your Project Chaos

The world has changed. Why is this happening? Smartsheet transforms your work.

Project controls help keep a project on schedule. They allow us to keep control over the structure, flow, and timing of a project.

9 of the Most Popular Methodologies for Project Management Made Simple

The world has changed. Why is this happening? Smartsheet transforms your work.

A Hubstaff survey, which was conducted in 2021, has some important information about project management methods.
39% of companies surveyed in 2021 stated that they used hybrid project management practices.
Leaders and managers who are forward-thinking in project management don’t follow a single method. They learn to use many methods and how to combine them to meet the needs of any project.
My goal is to help you identify and implement the best methodologies in your practice to deliver projects efficiently in the digital age. This article will provide an overview of PM methodology, describe popular project management methods, real-world examples, and steps to help choose the right method.
You can read the entire article or use the links to jump between sections.

9 Project Management Methodologies

Other Project Management Methodologies
Continue reading to learn more about project management methods.
How do you define project methodology?
Let’s take a look at what a project management method is. This definition of the PMI project management methodology is useful:
A methodology is a set of practices, techniques and procedures that are used by people who work in a discipline.
But!
Methodologies must be rooted in something fundamental that explains why we do things the way we do them. I suggest themes.
There are many ways project managers can deliver projects. These are, in general, our project management models. They apply different principles, themes frameworks, processes and standards to structure the way we deliver projects.
Different types of project management methods
We can see the differences in project management methods. They define a way to work.
Some project management methodologies only define principles, such as Agile. Some others define a “full-stack”, a framework of themes and principles that encompasses processes. Some standards include a long list of processes, such as the PMI methodology PMBOK. Others are more specific and define processes, such as Scrum.
Perhaps controversially, I prefer not to debate what’s a method to accomplish a project. Instead of using the broad (yes and mis)understanding PM methodologies to refer to simply the best practices frameworks we use to get it done.
To put it another way, I don’t believe a methodology must be a complete full-stack implement “system” to be considered a method.
It’s a useful and good definition. In reality, project managers use a variety of principles, themes and processes that are tailored to our clients and their projects.
Let’s be clear before we begin: there are many ways to manage projects, but there is no one “right” way.
The best methodology is the one that makes sense and is most appropriate for the project, team and client.
Let’s start by looking at some of the most popular methods for project management and learn some valuable tips for delivering digital projects.
How do I actually use these methods?

Jim Collins’ book Good to Great dispels many myths that prevent companies from reaching their full potential.

It’s been invaluable to be able to understand what worked for them and what didn’t.
Reach out to other business leaders
A great way to grow as a leader is to connect with experts who have been there and done that.

9 Essential Tips to Manage Remote Teams

This is part 2 in a series on how to get remote. Part 1 can be found here.
Many of you have found yourself in remote work situations over the past few days. There are many resources available to help you maximize your productivity while working remotely, but not much for managers who need to adapt to this new environment. Management of your team remotely is a challenge.
TeamGantt has been working remotely since the beginning. We have some tips to offer. We wanted to hear what other remote-first businesses had to say.
We reached out to the top remote companies to find their best advice for managers and leaders. Although most of these tips are from software companies, many of them can be applied to any remote workforce.
We’ll share some of our own lessons learned, and then we’ll discuss what we learned from other leaders who manage remote teams.
Establish a shared communication etiquette
Proper communication is essential for leaders. People could end up spending a lot of time on Slack responding in real-time to every message. This can reduce output and productivity. As a manager, it’s your responsibility to inform your team about the expected response time so that people can focus on their work.
Rally around a Plan
It can be difficult to keep everyone on the right page when working remotely. It is a great way to accomplish this is to create a visual plan that everyone can refer to and update together. Modern project planning is a great communication tool.
It might also be useful to track progress against your plan. I recommend asking your team to keep track of their progress on tasks each Friday. This will allow you to see if there is any work that is behind and help you address it as soon as possible. Your team will be more productive if everyone is following the same plan.

The easiest way to create a project plan
In just 10 minutes, you can create a beautiful project plan. You can switch between gantt and calendar views with a single click.

When work is done, unplug
According to the Buffer State of Remote Work survey, remote workers report that their biggest challenge is disconnecting from work. It can be difficult to distinguish between home and work, which can lead to burnout.
You can influence the behavior of your team by setting an example. Your team will see that you unplug at a specific time every day, and it will encourage them to do the same.
Productivity is measured by output and not input.
Source: Matt Mullenweg (CEO of Automattic WordPress), Harvard Business Review
It all starts with how we think about work. My experience is that many people in many companies are just going through the motions. We assume that someone is working if he shows up at work in appropriate clothes and isn’t drunk. We assume he is working hard if he is creating spreadsheets and to-do list. This is not a comprehensive look at what an employee creates in a day. It is possible, and unfortunately not uncommon, for an employee to sit at a computer for eight hours without producing any results.
Automattic is all about what you create, and not how well you perform. We measure work according the outputs. It doesn’t matter how many hours you work. I don’t care whether you get up at 3 AM or go to bed late. I don’t care whether you spend the afternoon on a golf course and then go to work at 2 – 5 AM. What do you actually produce?
Use asynchronous communication more
Source: Darren Murph Head of Remote at GitLab
“Asynchronous communication works best when there’s a company-wide agreement on where and how to input communication. Leaders need to carefully choose the right leaders
