Power User Spotlight: Tim LaComb, Visible SCM
Tim's Hack: People are the secret sauce.
Within every organization, there are a lot of different people with different personalities. I like to work through an organization, building relationships and bonds with key contacts. I have found that people, not companies, make the decisions at the end of the day. Focus on the people, and find those within an organization that you connect well with. It really is a differentiator in my experience.
