The Mobile Apps For Business Training Program is for individuals who want to do more with their smartphones than be entertained. In particular, they want to learn how to use the apps accessible through their mobile devices to become a more productive employee or business owner.
The Mobile Apps for Business Training has two objectives. The first is to orient participants to the behaviors competent people practice to run their lives and businesses effectively. The second objective is show participants how to use mobile technology to practice those behaviors with consistency and increasing efficiency.
- Showcases new, trending, and popular mobile apps used by entrepreneurs and small business owners to write their business plans, market and sell their products, bill customers, pay vendors, manage their finances, stay in touch with customers, and remain organized and productive
- Teaches participants how to use these apps’ features to reinforce effective business practices
- Gives participants ample opportunity and feedback to help to develop a moderate level of proficiency using these apps.
To optimize what participants learn, we assign them projects based on real-life business scenarios small business owners encounter on a daily basis. That includes their contact, appointment, task, document, and financial data.
Training Designed To Teach What Is Necessary Only
To select the appropriate set of mobile apps for business to study, clients must first know what they need. Among other factors, that need is defined by the goals they set for their businesses, their current state, and an assessment of their current technology’s capacity to carry them from current state to future state.
Conducting a needs assessment often requires training of its own. It requires distinguishing a symptom from a root cause, and it requires distinguishing technology based root causes from procedural root causes. Therefore, we start our clients’ training by first introducing them to effective business practices. We ask them to compare their own practices to those we introduce. Then we train them to optimize their use of the features from free and familiar mobile apps (e.g., Google Apps, MS Office 365 Apps, etc…).
Our clients quickly come to find that frequent use of a mobile app doesn’t always equate to being an advanced user, and we teach them to do new and necessary things for their businesses with the technology they already have.
Recognizing When Advanced Mobile Apps For Business Is Necessary
As our clients’ needs begin to exceed the capabilities of the technology they already have, we teach them to define the features and capacity the new apps will need. Then we teach them how to find and test apps recommended to meet their specifications prior to purchasing one.
