Dunno about IBM but at D that sounds like a straight shot to a 3, maybe a 2 if your project work was stellar. Not early promo level performance from what I've seen here

No matter your band level, you should always pitch your success in terms of business impact and professional growth. Also, I suggest learning the targets and top performer for the next band level, pass that person's numbers, and then work with your SAM on the promotion.

No. More important question: Why is IBM on a consulting forum? Shouldn't they be in the tech forum?

Is b&p business development?

technically biz dev is different from proposals... BD is growth side and proposal is capture side

DD1- what gets you promo at D?

@op if you're in the cbd program there I'm sure you can get early promo (I did 😁 )

Nah, we actually add value and perform consulting work. Not a bunch of byteheads.

False ^

Utilization doesn't equal Promotion. Your results matter. For the 150 hours of B&P what did you deliver. Did you win? On the billable side what is your story did we delight the client. What Band Level are you?

Hey dude can you hook me up with some of your B&P hours?
