Let's table this discussion so we can do a deep dive analysis on the due diligence performed on the work product to identify all low hanging fruit which is most impactful leadership and then circle back/touch base with the project team who has the bandwidth to implement changes which will take the work product to the next level in order to provide the most value-add and move the needle.

“High level”

YES. During my first month in finance, I thought this meant “advanced.” Like if you got to a high level in a video game or something.

So i have been fortunate that i have managed to go through my career without the need for a degree. I was lucky enough to have been hired by one of the worlds top consulting firms, worked with a whole lot of big clients and travelled a lot. It's gotten to the point where I am not even asked about the lack of a degree on my resume. Personally though, it bothers me. I have a whole bunch of certifications in my industry…but just no formal degree. (cont'd)
