Overall summary of the role
The person must demonstrate experience originating / proposing solution (which is NOT the same as software products) either in an internal or external role. The candidate must have story telling skills, and be able to bridge business and IT
Ideal pattern is to have solid delivery experience during early stage of career, and gradually move into solution role. Specifically, for people working in services company, we need to differentiate between Consulting and Technology ......, you see what I mean.
Must receive the details of the experience, meaning which client, what project (in the previous batch of CV, one candidate worked with HP to deliver the COMPASS project, that was NOT a very successful project ! (this would need Agency to clean up )
For sourcing, check if there are low handing fruits. For example, some clients recently have a lot of turn over.
Again for sourcing, there are often one to two lead players in the small / medium local SI companies looking for bigger exposure. We need to do marketing targeting these players
For technology experience, it should be very factual
