These two days I attended NEO Training, which means New Employee Oriented Training. I’ve learnt a lot around all things that I should know for my work, including company history, business strategy, BU introduction, software brand introduction and so on. It is very worthy for our new comers, and I am very happy to get an opportunity to make a high vision to see and understand my company.
Personally, the greatest feeling I took from this two-day-training is to *THINK BIG*. IBM, one of the biggest company in the world, is always think big for a high level solution or service to benefit not only for the company itself, but also for all the people around the world. I am sure you have seen a lot of advertisements that tell you IBM’s concept — to build a smarter planet, a smarter earth. Yes, this is really an amazing idea in business territory. When most of small scale companies or economic entities think about how to make business run well for an activity, a solution, a process, even for an industry, and earn money back from that events, IBM has already thought about how to make a city, a country, and our world become better and better. It is easy to say a slogan for smarter planet, but actually it is really really hard to put them into action. Electric industry, city traffic, healthcare… all of them need to make plenty of complicated solution with rapid and gigantean computing, safe and credible storage. It is really tough on how to use all kinds of technologies to deliver a reasonable and available solution for smarter planet. This is really a big challenge not only for IBMers but also for all the people for our future. Additionally, the place where we can use our mind to successfully do something big and better, is also the place where we can earn more not only cash but also respect and admire.
Of course I learnt a lot of DOs and DONTs as a regular, but I think I got more from that. Stand higher, think bigger, then we can see further, we can become richer, both mentally and materially.
