3 Golden Rules for Successful Online Study


Whether you are a school-leaver, university graduate, single parent, overworked professional, or high-powered executive, flexible online training and education programs let you learn new skills at your own pace and in any location, as long as you can access the Internet (and even when you can’t, study material can often be browsed offline).   If you’ve never tried this form of (largely self-driven) education though, it’s important not to interpret “convenient” to mean “easy”.   To succeed with online study, you need to put in just as much effort and commitment as with any other mode of learning. Indeed, online study can be hard to adjust to, requiring a self-disciplined approach and the ability to manage and balance your time.   Rob’s Tips for Successful Online Study Rob O’Byrne knows a fair bit about online education, since as you may already know, he founded an online supply chain school to help professionals gain the pragmatic industry knowledge often omitted from more academic programs. Are you thinking about joining Rob’s Supply Chain Leaders Academy (blended learning program), or signing up for Our Supply Chain Secrets (supply chain e-Classes)? If so, or you have plans to enrol on any other online education program, you might find the following three golden rules helpful to follow, especially if you haven’t tried online learning before.   1. Home is Not Always the Best Classroom Before you decide to conduct most of your online study activity from home, consider first if that will really be the best learning environment. Some people have no problem studying from home, while others find it too easy to let distractions get in the way.   If you’re in the latter category, you might want to try studying in a different environment, such as an Internet cafe, coffee shop, or library.   The background noise in public buildings may actually...

How to Advance Your Education at Supply Chain Conferences


If you’re a supply chain professional, a student in the field, or you just want to learn more about supply chain operations, there is a raft of benefits to be had from attending supply chain conferences. What you may not have considered though, is that there are ways and means to maximise the educational value of supply chain conferences, seminars, and similar events. I’ve put together this short guide to help you make sure every supply chain conference you attend is 100% educational. The key principal behind this guidance is to pick the right conferences to meet your learning objectives. If you get that part right, the rest is down to your ability to be attentive and choose the right conference sessions in which to participate.   First: Clarify Your Learning Objectives There is an awful lot to be learned at supply chain conferences and events. So much so, that without a bit of prior planning, it’s easy to be overwhelmed, unsure of which sessions to take part in, and to suffer from information overload. The best way to avoid these problems is to identify exactly what supply chain topics you want to learn about. The more narrowly you focus in this regard, the better. So you need to ask yourself some questions like: What topics of education will deliver the most value for you and your organisation? Will you benefit most from general supply chain conferences or those focusing on a particular aspect? What specific topics will help you solve real-world problems in your company? What disciplines do you need to sharpen in order to raise your career performance? Once you have a list of educational objectives, you can move on to the next step in planning your conference attendance wish-list.   Choose Supply Chain Conferences Wisely Now you know what you most need to learn about, you...

What Makes Australia a Great Country for Business Students?


As two of Rob O’Byrne’s foremost passions are helping people succeed in business and helping people to learn about business, it seemed like a great idea to write a post about business study in Australia. If you’re a young or mature student, planning to undertake some study outside of your home country, there are far worse locations that you could choose than the Land of Oz. To illustrate the point, here are a few important reasons why Australia is a great country for business students from anywhere in the world.   Focus on International Business As a nation, Australia is necessarily supportive of global trade, since it depends a lot on overseas markets. Hence business students have access not only to study programs with a focus on international trade, but also to a population of fellow students encompassing a wide range of nationalities and cultures. Absence of Cultural Boundaries The Australian business-education environment blends the perspectives of Eastern and Western business and management styles and methodologies. In short, Australia is not only well-versed in hosting international scholars, it’s a great country for business students to gain an appreciation of professional diversity. Work Experience Opportunities When you enroll with an Australian educational institution, you can be assured that you will be given ample opportunity to gain experience in the industry for which you are studying. Internships in Australian companies are usually plentiful, as are industry-specific projects, where you and your fellow students work on solving live problems for real businesses. So Good, You Might Want to Stay Australia is also a great country for business students to stay on after graduation. If you fall in love with the country during your studies, there are a few channels through which you can stay on after graduation, either for a short or longer period of time. Other advantages include the fact that...
