I came across this article and just couldn't help bringing a smile to my face.
Education has been a theme throughout many of the items I have discussed previously. So, just great to see ComputerWorld step up and bring it right to the forefront. I have a lot of history in IT related experience and always wanted to get my MBA. Once I moved from being a technologist and into Management, my work ever increasingly became less about technology and more about business. However, when one is working 50+ hours a week and traveling, getting one's MBA is not the easiest thing in the world to get.
So, once I had real time on my hands, this was the first thing I did and I say many times over, amazing what I accomplished by instinct and tuition without having this excellent background. To all who see this, all I can say is even if you are not able to find a way to get the MBA, if you are in Management and have evolved there from a technology background, take as many classes as you can. If you are at conference, don't be afraid to sit in on some business related sessions. The people in there don't bite.
If what you learn after you know it all that counts, imagine what learning what you don't know will do for you !!!
