Sr. Manager, Online & Mobile Experience
Cisco Systems

A common business problem is that employees want to advance their career, but they often build a plan that is focused on promotions. They want to move up but do not consider lateral moves or moves outside their profession or outside their function. Beyond that, employees need the knowledge, tools, and resources to prepare for career change opportunities. Cisco has addressed this problem by constructing a mobile solution that enables employees to explore careers based on a career lattice approach.

In this session participants will learn from Cisco’s Bring Your Career to Life, the mobile solution Cisco has implemented which accelerates the planning and decisions toward growing a career at Cisco. You will explore Bring Your Career to Life through Career Navigator, a desktop and mobile tool that gets the employee started so that they understand the high-level concepts of career planning, can learn the job families within Cisco, and can discover what skills and learning are necessary to be qualified for specific roles. Participants will discuss the full story of the development of the solution, including how to influence executives regarding mobile, how to build it fast, and what technologies are necessary.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The key design principles for an enterprise mobile solution
  • How to build it fast and innovate
  • About technology solutions for a mobile web experience
  • Typical mobile project mistakes and how to overcome them

Novice designers, managers, and directors.

Technology discussed in this session:
iPhone, iPad, Android phone, and Android tablet.
