Our Focus 2017
Fall 2017 is here. The field of wireline and wireless infrastructure communications continues to grow with many new and exciting opportunities in front of us. Terms such as “HetNet”, “Internet of Things” and “Big Data” are common expressions we all hear about and are experiencing. Everyone within our industry is playing a role in transforming our network. GlenMartin sees their role as an project manager who can lead the charge in solving some of our most challenging problems facing network expansion. A project well managed will define the future of our network ecosystem.
2017 marks a year of refined focus at GlenMartin. Our primary central efforts will center around “project management” within the field of telecom infrastructure and transportation infrastructure development. This may include bulk inspections, bulk modifications, general maintenance, lease reviews, bulk site development, roadway Information Transportation Systems “ITS”, road weather information system “RWIS”, project bench marking, technical scoping and larger scope projects. Site development as we understand it means all things related to establishing an operating and functioning communication facility. Emphasis will be placed on smaller scope projects with larger over all bulk visits to sites. Smaller scope will allow us to define the process closely and enable us optimize visits. We have always had a deep sense of understanding of the communication facility, however 2017 will bring new opportunities to our organization in management of these facilities.
GlenMartin will continue to support products but will primarily focus on production run opportunities. We will search for larger production run opportunities and seek to grow a select number of products historically built by the company with production run opportunities. This approach will involve reduction of many SKU’s and the addition of some new SKU’s to our organization. Our products will be supported by a distributor sales channel to market rather than a direct channel to market approach.
GlenMartin will heighten awareness of actual field operations and integrate this into our project management process. Heightening our awareness of the facility, its function and its engagement with the surroundings is critical to finding success. We will expand on this element of management via our “ALTAWERK” field management platform. ALTAWERK will integrate with GlenMartin approaches and seek to heighten awareness and understanding surrounding the environmental, technical and physical difficulties surrounding workforce management.
Focus and discipline will become a trademark of our organization as we focus on the following core values within our organization [Trust, Knowledge, Passion, Collaboration and Humility]. These five character traits will complement our service offerings in telecom infrastructure development.
TRUST – KNOWLEDGE – PASSION – COLLABORATION –HUMILITY
For 2017 we continue to develop the 5 character traits we believe will help elevate our organization. These traits are not obtained overnight rather take effort and focus to build overtime. We believe it will take several years to perfect these traits within our organization. The challenge for 2017 is “can we grow”. Can we begin to exhibit these traits in all we do as an organization to influence positive growth? Damon Richards said:
Your customer doesn’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.
Passionate employees bring care and attention to life when they solve challenging problems at work. GlenMartin seeks to build a passionate work environment. Those who do a job should enjoy what they do and this should show in their work.
Harry Firestone said:
I believe fundamental honesty is the keystone of business.
To be honest is to have trust as a cornerstone in your organization. As Zig Ziglar so famously said, “If people like you, they’ll listen to you, but if they trust you, they’ll do business with you.” Trust starts with leadership in an organization and spans to every aspect of the operation. GlenMartin seeks to be a trusted organization.
Knowledge is having the right answer. You can’t get the right answer without learning. So never stop learning. Knowledge must be shared within an organization and with others. We will share what we know with our clients and our partners. Hoarding knowledge never gets you anywhere. As Ben Franklin said, “Knowledge pays the best interest”. GlenMartin will seek to hire individuals who seek to continually grow their knowledge and improve their self-worth.
Collaboration is one of our highly desired qualities. So much more can be accomplished as a team than by ourselves. Henry Ford figured this out. He most notably said: “Coming together is the beginning, keeping together is progress; working together is success”. Today we have so many distractions that divide us and prevent us from truly collaborating. GlenMartin will seek to collaborate as a team.
Our final and most important quality is Humility. This quality is the glue that holds us together as an organization. As they say, “Dream Big, Work Hard, and Stay Humble”. It’s not easy to do but it’s the quality that will define us as an organization. Humility is not a weak quality but rather a very strong quality that requires confidence and self-balance. GlenMartin will push hard in 2017 to establish these qualities in everything we do and push hard from within our organization to envelop these traits.
Our Addison Texas-based “Project Management” team is excited to usher in another year as an industry leader. We realize the networks we build are changing our lives and writing a new chapter in history. Our team is well represented with members who have extensive experience in all facets of telecom infrastructure. Recruiting efforts are expanding as we seek to continue to hire talent. This will fuel the growth of our company as we seek to add additional talent to our already exceptional team.
