The story behind Funzi really starts with the people behind Funzi. Those that envision a world where there would be no wars, a world where everyone is living meaningfully and happily. Now you might be thinking, why don’t you add to that dream a world where it’s only sunshine, rainbows and unicorns because it seems a little far-fetched. But we believe that when you stop dreaming, or even dreaming the impossible, is when you stop making the impossible possible.
In recent years, mobile devices have transformed the way we learn and consume information. One major way technology is affecting the workplace is in how training is delivered. In 2016, there were 4,8 bn unique mobile subscribers globally. That said, as the leaders of today’s organizations, you need to understand how this development affects your workforce, and adapt accordingly.
Today’s employees are internet and mobile-savvy individuals. The majority of their communication, and even learning, can be carried out in the palm of their hand. Mobile is an integral part in their everyday lives, and therefore an excellent platform for corporate training as well as lifelong learning.
Most working in the tech industry are familiar with the concept of the technology evangelist. A person that takes the technology, product, or service that a company develops, creates a story around it, and roams the world, making everyone aware - and a fan - of that tech, product, or service. Globally, famous service and technology evangelists include Steve Jobs, Guy Kawasaki, Dan’l Lewin, and my fellow Finn, Peter Vesterbacka. Not all technologies succeed or survive and that makes the job of the evangelist often lonely and always challenging.
