Dionesia D.Valencia Thank you. This is a very informative considering that I am a candidate applicant for the position of MS Dynamic AX Business Analyst -Finance.Insightful for the career path I am taking up right now. I thought I am shifting to another career. No it's not. It's actually a continuity of my passion of doing analysis of business processes. As a former internal auditor, the skill will be a weapon to go on on this career path. I know it's a long way. But the challenge is a motivating factor to reach my ultimate goal, the position of Project Manager responsible of MS Dynamic ERP implementation. I like to take this challenge to keep my adrenalin pump in and makes me high spirit in achieving my goal, so help me God thru the intercession of Mama Mary. God bless me, so I could be a blessing to others.

I have been Consulting with Dynamics GP for 17 years through 9 different partners, including my own, and the amazing thing to me is that Owners/management misses some of the biggest motivation to this job, feeling like you have input into the company you work for. Clients pay 10's of thousands of $'s for our experience and knowledge and the companies we work for know better than us what a consulting practice needs and what we want as individuals. The other biggest mistake they make is thinking the clients belong to the Partner, and not the consultant...we build the relationship with the customer, and they trust us....and our bosses are still amazed when we leave and the clients move with us.

Totally agree we are the interface...we spend long day working in Business workshops and analaizing customer business cycles,solving cases, brainstorming....so customers does not know the partner. I most of partners does not have consultants retention plans...specially when moving to customer side... fogetten you are the main Asset (Human Capital) in the company. I am enjoying my time being in Customer side Mohamed Aamer, MCP, MCT
