The IT Manager's perspective: Learning, Career

The IT Manager's perspective: People as an Asset



Self-paced training and organisations such as Pluralsight, Coursera,
Udemy, Code Academy, Safari books online and many others spotted a gap
in the market and have put training material at a price point that an
individual can afford.



  • The problem I am trying to solve
  • How I am proposing to solve it
  • The resources I need to do so
  • How I will measure the success of an initiative
  • How long will it take to demonstrate that success
  • What are the milestones that will show that I am on track
There are two quotes from Richard Branson. The first is "Train people
well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don't
want to."


A sustainable learning ecosystem is a substantial step to fulfilling both.




The 2nd quote is "If you look after your staff, they'll look after your customers. It's that simple".


If by investing in your staff they pay greater attention to their
customers, both internal and external, then ultimately this is an
investment in the future of the organisation.

What does it mean to be an individual? What is society? And where are
we going? Paweł Kuczyński, a famous cartoonist from Poland, poses these
and many other questions in his work.



We put together a selection of 20 of Kuczyński’s best drawings. Their
combination of subtle humour and thought-provoking ideas throw
up a whole number of uncomfortable questions about the nature of the
world we live in.

Making Sense of the Conflagration

Making Sense of the Conflagration



uring the primaries, with a languid sarcasm, I said this about the emerging Trump versus Cruz confrontation:



Like two zen masters facing off in a martial arts
classic or perhaps two wizards doing battle in The Lord of the Rings, we
have an epic confrontation between two masters who have trained for
decades in the arts of assholery and bullying. But their powers equally
matched, it is a stand off.
Cruz is a thoroughly awful person. This is entirely apart from his
politics. I know many people with awful politics who are wholly
creditable people.

  • Sensory Learners
  • Intuitive Learners – if you rely too much on
    intuition you risk missing important details, which can lead to poor
    decision-making and problem solving. Force yourself to learn facts or
    memorize data that will help you defend or criticize a theory or
    procedure you are working with. You may need to slow down and look at
    detail you would otherwise typically skim.
  • Visual Learners – if you concentrate more on
    pictorial or graphical information than on words, you put yourself at a
    distinct disadvantage because verbal and written information is still
    the main preferred choice for delivery of information. Practice your
    note taking and seek out opportunities to explain information to others
    using words.
  • Verbal Learners
  •  



  • Active Learners – if you act before you think you
    are apt to make hasty and potentially ill-informed judgments. You need
    to concentrate on summarizing situations, and taking time to sit by
    yourself to digest information you have been given before jumping in and
    discussing it with others.
  • Global Learners – if grasping the big picture is easy
    for you, then you can be at risk of wanting to run before you can walk.
    You see what is needed but may not take the time to learn how best to
    accomplish it. Take the time to ask for explanations, and force yourself
    to complete all problem-solving steps
  • Reflective Learners – if you think too much you
    risk doing nothing. There comes a time when a decision has to be made or
    an action taken. Involve yourself in group decision-making whenever
    possible and try to apply the information you have in as practical a
    manner as possible.
  • Sequential Learners – when you break things down
    into small components you are often able to dive right into problem
    solving. This seems to be advantageous but can often be unproductive.
    Force yourself to slow down and understand why you are doing something
    and how it is connected to the overall purpose or objective.
