> New Year, New Momentum
> by Fadi Chehadé on January 10, 2014
> At ICANN, we begin 2014 with a management “base camp” for executive staff to 
> gather, take stock and get ready for the next phase of intense activities. It 
> follows ICANN’s December holiday, during which the staff and I took time to 
> step back from the frenzy of daily work and spend time with family and 
> friends.
> Holding this base camp so close to our return from the holiday was 
> intentional. The time to recharge and reflect is an important part of 
> ensuring forward progress. As the poet Kahlil Gibran wrote, “the mountain to 
> the climber is clearer from the plain.”
> This trimester, of all the areas I’ll focus on, I will personally zero in on 
> four. First and foremost, I am focused on management and human resources 
> development, an important facet for a growing organization. We recently 
> created our first HR development program to foster staff’s professional 
> growth. This will also be a personal goal for me, to coach and work closely 
> with the executive team and other managers to encourage continued 
> professional development.
> Second, we are working diligently to design and operationalize the first 
> ICANN Executive Management Dashboard. At base camp, we will finalize the 
> dashboard’s list of key performance indicators for each ICANN objective/goal. 
> The dashboard will provide our managers the ability to gain real-time 
> insights into our performance, thus enhancing decision-making and optimizing 
> operational performance.
> The third area I will focus on is strengthening the ICANN technical and 
> technology staff profile and resources. Among my objectives is to complete 
> the search for a new head of technical operations.
> And lastly, I will stay engaged in the global discussions of Internet 
> governance and what ICANN’s role should be in this evolving ecosystem.
> As you may have heard, I plan to split my residence this year among the 
> cities in which ICANN has operational hubs. From mid-February through April, 
> I will be based in the Singapore hub. Later this year, I will also relocate 
> to Istanbul. I am excited to join our staff in bringing ICANN to the world.
> Happy new year!
