Welcome to the Information Management Academic Community Updates for Faculty Blog!
I would like to use this blog to post interesting information relevant to the academic community. Please feel free to comment and let's discuss things further! The IM Academic Community Marketing team is really interested in hearing your views about what you are seeing and hearing from your vantage point, whether that be as a university professional or a student or a business leader or an IBMer. Let us know where you see needs and we will work together to help out.
We will also use this forum to post interesting profiles of Young Professionals doing interesting real-world projects using IBM technology to learn what they are finding valuable in their early careers and what helped them get to their current positions in the first place.
Today, let me point you to this interesting study by the IBM Institute for Business Value: http://www-931.ibm.com/tela/webmail/Newsletter/7486/22705
The Strategy and Change Section points us to a report: Inheriting a Complex World It can be downloaded for the complete version.
Both CEOs and current student leaders were interviewed about what future leaders will need to be successful in our complex world. Several points jumped out at me.
- Today's current CEOs talked about creativity and and adventurous spirit being very critical. This seems to be SO important, yet often overlooked while trying to ensure that a high amount of knowledge and skills are imparted to our students in always too short a time.
- Both CEOs and students also noted how important the correct analysis of trends is/will be. CEOs noted this relative to operational dexterity and students comment on making decisions using more data. Will databases have been around for a long time now, their importance continues to grow. As does the amount data to be analyzed. Students need a strong knowledge of database fundamentals to understand how data can be managed and what capabilities are possible with data analysis. IBM has a large portfolio of data analysis products and tools. Let's work together to use these tools to teach students what they need to learn to be successful for their future.
