The work I did yesterday has been lost. Four hours worth of compiling information is just...gone. I'm currently using Microsoft OneDrive to sync my work. Yesterday, I entered a lot - a LOT - of information into my master spreadsheet. Today when I arrived, I accessed the spreadsheet from OneDrive and saw it didn't have the changes I made. I called IT and they helped me get remotely authenticated to my work PC so I could see if the file had somehow gotten stuck locally. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the information I entered is simply gone.
Rather than wasting time crying over spilled milk, I spent most of today locating titles for competencies. I still find that I struggle with finding the right search term to use. Some of the competencies don't lend themselves well to specific titles. For instance: "Developing Objectives and Strategies". To me, that kinda sounds like thinking strategically, so I looked up titles on strategic thinking. Most of what I found was related to strategic planning as a process, and not the specific act of developing or crafting strategies.
I think the conclusion I've reached is that I'll simply need to go with some of the broader topics that are related to the competencies, and not get so hung up on the precise terminology and definitions. I need to remember that these are starters - not intended to be the end-all-be-all lists of resources related to each competency.
So far, I've located about 36 resources. I'm striving for a total of 81.
Hopefully I'll be able to spend some time tomorrow re-building the spreadsheet information I lost so I can concentrate on finding more titles when I return to the State Library this Friday.
To map available State Library of Ohio resources to the 27 job competencies impacting the 66 job classifications and 253 employees at the Ohio Office of Budget and Management.
