Technology and business management of tomorrow

  • With the rise of smart phones, mobile applications are one of the biggest growing markets in the world today. In the present society, the majority of people have a smart phone and the majority of those install mobile applications. This means that mobile applications have naturally over time, become so embedded in our daily lives that we essentially increasingly seem to ‘need’ them.
  • I know for a fact that I use apps all time, everyday. If I had a bigger size iPhone I would have more apps. I use the native Music app on my phone every time I’m out of the house, I use my Calendar app to manage my time, without it I would be hopelessly unorganised. I use the Google Chrome (sorry Safari users!) app to search for anything on the go. Those were some examples but you get the point, apps play a significant role in our day to day lives.
  • When it comes to managing people, developing an individual’s personality and skills so that they can become the best at what they do is very ‘one way’ at times. We have skills that can be taught to us that are specific for a job called hard skills, while the more natural and social skills are classed as soft skills. Many employers and managers seek to have the best of both worlds when it comes to skill sets to ensure that the employee will fit in seamlessly into companies.
  • Currently, companies send their employees for leadership training in London or other western cities, where they are still being taught through traditional means. Mobile app development could provide a real boost to this industry, and in turn, could be a very niche and untapped market for mobile app developers worldwide.
  • The link between mobile applications and direct management
  • Most mobile applications are very efficient at what they do because they are handheld, always competitive to be the ‘best’ which drives the quality of product up and up and it’s easy to pick out the best from app stores via the feedback system in which the store has. Many of these skill sets that I previously mentioned can be aided vastly with the help of mobile applications. In my day we used to read tonnes and tonnes of books to gain knowledge for exams and such. In today’s world it is very easy to download apps to our tablets or phones that provide a better, more manageable learning experience.
  • It is clear that it is more than possible to incorporate apps into the management of people in many sectors, whether it be HR, media, leadership, interpersonal skills, finance training or anything related. There are many benefits that could come out of app developers or companies putting money and time into the development of such apps.
  • Some useful aspects that will come out of this include: less use of paper when teaching people, this alone is a good reason due to environmental factors and recycling becoming a big issue in the world today, and guess what? Apps do not run using paper, only pixels! Another massive change will be the fact that these apps can constantly be updated quicker than other methods, with our skill needs always in a competitive state where bigger and better is always the way forward, these apps that aid learning can be updated by the developer which will in turn keep the product as up to date as it can be.
  • Another big impact that this move towards mobile app development to help with corporate employee development will be the financial aspect. Whereas currently you can find employees in all sectors, such as finance and others sent for finance training in London and other major cities, in the future, these same employees will be able to attend the same training and development with a much higher success rate and knowledge gain specifically due to the increased resources at their disposal – a big contender for these resources are of course, productivity apps and apps made for the help of employee training and development.
  • Are there any current examples?
  • This idea isn’t a thing of the future as there are already many developers and companies who use mobile application aid to help with their business, whether they are delivering a conference call, efficiently teaching their staff or even just to play some angry birds while they are on their break!
  • Here are some current apps out there that are designed to make life easier for employees of many trades:
  • Total workplace performance
  • This handy app is worthwhile checking out, it has 734 skills that relate in the workplace. It separates into 4 categories; Leadership, Communication, Workloads and Performance. This is very helpful for teachers, managers, etc.
  • 50 Interviews
  • Ever wanted a quick motivational app to push you to stop being lazy? This is the app you want, it simply shows interviews from the worlds best entrepreneurs, it acts like a digital mentor that, looking at the reviews, definitely impacts the customers who gave amazing feedback.
  • Keynote
  • Apple’s take on simplified presentations. There are tons of templates available on the go so that you can create neat presentations to whom ever you like. A great feature of this is that it syncs with iCloud which allows any other apple product to share access with whatever content you create.
  • To conclude, there is a massive potential market for developers to create apps that will help the corporate industry with management, training, organisation and much more. It’s time that we start embracing the technology that we are surrounded with more and embedding it into our methods of training for the greater benefit.
