There are many challenges in working in such a fast paced and exciting environment, as that which is found in both the Mobile and Wireless industries.
In order to make sure your skills don’t become redundant, it is necessary to invest your time and effort in keeping your business and technical skills up to date. You should make every effort to ensure your employer helps you with this. Most good employers will make sure that you are adequately equipped to deal with the issues of the day. However, they may not always provide you with the training you think you may need to reach your career goals.
Whether your employer sponsors you or not, you should take every effort to keep up to date by regularly attending courses run by industry experts in their appropriate field. Not only is it a great way to learn, but it is also a great way to network with people as motivated as you are to enhance and develop their career.
The key areas of training we highlight here cannot possibly cover all the courses that may be relevant to your profession. We’ve made a simple split between technical and business training.
It is expected that most employees working in business will already have at least a Batchelors degree, so we have taken a look at MBA’s. This level is in demand more than ever by top employers and will often sponsor staff they consider to be top flight, which they want to keep and develop. However, having an MBA makes you highly marketable. Here is an example of some of the leading institutions offering an MBA worldwide:-
Keeping up with the latest technical developments is essential, not only for those with technical/engineering positions, but also for commercial people. Very often, it is not possible to be able to develop a business case, or create a business model, demonstrating new revenue streams that can be tapped into without the understanding of how it will deliver something different which will have a winning proposition. It is also necessary to realize the impact on users of existing technologies – is the technology appealing? Who does it appeal to and Why? Is it possible to quantify the likely impact on cannibalizing existing technologies that your company may already have a vested interest in? Those questions just deal with the revenue line, without considering any of the cost, scalability, quality of service and interoperability issues.
There is no doubt that technology is a key driver for future growth, so understand it.
