You have knowledge but is it relevant to today’s issues? Currency is critical for the IT professional. IT changes rapidly. At Jidaw we stress that you cannot use yesterday’s knowledge to solve today’s problems. Are you living in the past or are you up to date? Our answer not the question determines our relevance.
Why do you desire the comfort of sleep in an industry that changes so fast? Let dinosaurs rest in peace. The IT field is one of the fastest developing fields worldwide. Job and tech markets change all the time. What is in demand today may be obsolete tomorrow. Jidaw wonders: Are you keeping pace with trends and developments? Do you watch the changes or are you part of those driving change? Old knowledge may have no relevance. In IT, the outdated professional is an endangered species. Keeping yourself up to date is critical. At our training institution at Jidaw we always stress to our students that if you want to stay ahead of the pack? Maintain and grow your skills.
At Jidaw, we make it very clear that there are no full stops in learning. How much do you know about current and upcoming technologies? For example, if network infrastructure is your thing, are you up to speed with related security and wireless issues? How comfortable are you with the new thinking and concepts that you must handle? Let the dinosaurs rest in peace. Jidaw is convinced that an always learning mind will constantly reveal new and real sources of value. With relevance and value, knowledge is an opportunity to set yourself apart. IT is not settled, not fixed, in fact we are still scratching the surface of what is possible in IT. No matter what you know and can do, keep your learning cap on. Nothing has been settled.
Stay ahead with constant learning. Dinosaurs have no place in IT. Learning frees us from the prisons of subjective opinions and half-baked knowledge. At Jidaw we tell you to desire both knowledge and value. Getting ahead requires you to have the foresight and desire for continuous learning, as well as the enthusiasm for value. How will new Cisco skills help in improving the organization’s bottomline? Your Linux expertise could be the solution to improved service delivery.
In conclusion, Jidaw asks: so how prepared are you for the new technologies and thinking in the knowledge driven world? What are the opportunities and challenges? How will these changes affect your clients, colleagues and partners? We live in a world of constant change. There is no escape. We must discard the dinosaur mindset by expecting and embracing change.
HAVE YOUR SAY: Learning for the sake of knowledge? How do we ensure that new knowledge adds value? What is the relevance of your learning experiences? Please share your comments, thoughts and opinions.
