Hi everyone, please excuse the mildly irrelevant post. I suppose this can be asked of any technology/product, but I’m specifically dealing with VMware here, so…
I want to inquire about your experience with people in business-minded roles but that clearly(or you suspect) have no **operational** experience with VMware products or maybe **any** IT ops experience at all.
Positive experiences? Do you think it’s a necessity to have hands-on experience for these roles? Or is satisfaction possible if they don’t? Is it obvious? How were you able to tell?
I’m increasingly in a position where my company is bringing on more of this category of people… college “busm Admin” grads, maybe with MBA degree, but no ops experience(or little tech at all), to fulfil business-roles. I am trying to better understand if this is actually a good decision.
I’m also being asked to fulfil business roles in an area where I don’t have on-hands experience with the relevant technology and arguing that they should first offer supporting learning/utilizing the related tech extending beyond theoretical knowledge. (I mean, reading documentation without application seems akin to reading the dictionary and not communicating)
