ABSTRACT
The article reports that the key ingredient in any network design project is people, in particular the analysts and managers who must identify and assess the mix of products and services to build the network. Unfortunately, most organizations seem to have abandoned training programs intended to help managers develop and maintain the skills required to design, specify, build and manage sophisticated networks. The author makes a clear distinction between management training and certification. Certification deals with lower-level employees and a particular subject area. Developing the skills to work at the analyst or manager level in the field is not simply a matter of collecting a string of certifications. Certification programs don't provide the skills needed to design networks. Telecom organizations, both on the buying and selling sides, have largely abandoned programs aimed at developing people to assume management roles, and have chosen to certify screwdriver operators. Network professionals recognize the need for ongoing training, and most of them know they're not getting it.
