To implement any new technology like Blockchain, you need to follow a skills acquisition path so that you don’t make missteps and create cathedrals in the desert that embarrass your company and waste its resources.
We’ve identified five areas of expertise divided into five phases of implementation
Most companies cannot develop competencies in all of these areas, but they can partner with outside firms for specific aspects of these phases.
A network of Italian companies has developed a Blockchain training path called BlockchainWorkshop.it that allows them to quickly acquire all the necessary knowledge.
Knowing the fundamentals of Blockchain is an essential skill as important as developing applications.
Step 1 Education: learn the basic features of the Blockchain technology, what classes of problems it can generically solve and the opportunities that the Blockchain offers
Step 2 Problem/Solution Fit: identifying areas of business problems that current technology does not solve and analyzing if and where Blockchain can be the solution.
Step 3 App Design: what functional solutions will we need to address the problem we discovered in the previous step? How will it affect what we are doing, including business processes, contractual and legal requirements?
Step 4 Software Development: technology selection, vendor selection, integration and implementation of the Blockchain in the enterprise, and security audits
