Becoming a Digital Boss Is Key for Profitable Organizations
In the November 2021 article of the Graphic Communication Advisors Group (GCAG), Laura Moynihan, principal of Digital Helpmates in Bremerton, Washington, describes how to become a “Digital Boss” over the day-to-day technologies required for industry and private use.
In her article, Lessons from The Jetsons … and how to become a Digital Boss, Moynihan points out that efficient use of computers and mobile devices is a must for productive and profitable organizations. However, with the present labor shortage, companies are forced to hire workers that may lack sufficient computer and digital-device knowledge. Additionally, training budgets often do not exist or are insufficient for such on-the-job training, particularly when working remotely. Moynihan describes alternative tutoring for industry newcomers and other individuals wanting to master as well as understand their digital devices. Moynihan points out that, “A Digital Boss has the right to be served by their technology, not the opposite.”
Moynihan’s complete article is available at:
Harvey Levenson, Cal Poly Professor Emeritus and coordinator of the GCAG, said: “Laura Moynihan’s Digital Helpmates idea to expedite digital training is seminal. I do not know of any other such training, both online and/or in person. The pandemic and labor shortage has heightened the urgency for such training as inexperienced workers enter industry, and as “stay-at-home” individuals are relying more on electronic communication than ever before.”
Moynihan’s article is the eleventh in the first-year series of the Graphic Communication Advisory Group (https://hrlevenson.wixsite.com/gcag), and will appear in an annual journal early in 2022.
