Justify an Investment in Education
There is a, possibly apocryphal, story about the famous artist Pablo Picasso that highlights the efficiencies gained from practice and experience.
One day, as he was visiting a market, a woman stopped him and asked for a small drawing. He scribbled a quick piece of art, handed it back, and requested a million dollar fee. The woman, alarmed, exclaimed 'But it only took you thirty seconds!'. Picasso responded 'It took me thirty years to draw that masterpiece in thirty seconds!'.
Whether or not this exchange occurred, it speaks to the gains in efficiency, and improvement in skill, that develop when we invest in ourselves, and our craft. Education is just this, an investment in our ability to be better, faster, and more innovative in our daily lives. If you are looking for ways to justify an investment in an Oracle University Cloud Learning Subscription, consider the following:
The accreditations available within Oracle University help you showcase your knowledge and skills with opportunities to earn career-boosting, industry-recognized accreditations. Earning the badge allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and skill (either on LinkedIn, or in your email signature) and lets some teams ensure that new-hires know what they're doing when they get access to the tool.
SaaS applications are constantly changing. Features are being deprecated and new ones are being deployed. To stay on-top of these updates, and ensure you're utilizing them in the most strategic way, you can rely on the release-based learning paths that go-live at the same time as the product release.
