I didnot change .still I am in option 1.But I want the conclusion
For conclusion, do debate with CEans in favour of option 2. Then If both sides or any third side if any will give up , I will conclude my observation through this thread about CEans and fact.
Would you like to have a technical bond person who is not willing to contribute much towards his team, but just wants to improve his own knowledge??
When it comes to teamwork,it requires inputs and efforts from each and every person.This person(technical bond) would either try to complete everything on his own or would not do anything.He might not like even helping others and that is not healthy at all..
Is there any option, like..." a technical bond person who is not willing" in poll.
I cant see that
Yes first option can be called so thats why second option was made .
So will a technical bond person will be a good team member?? does only technical knowledge is enough for a team to be successfull???.........at least my team will have mix of everything,all nerds are a no-no.
Answer will depend on the situation when I am selecting that person.
Suppose there is a new module where I am going to make great technical changes then first options suits to me. Otherwise Its always better to go with a person who have desire to learn things. In more then 80% cases i will mark 2 as my option.
-CrazyBoy is back
@J2R On what basis, you voted for option1 . Please explain and debate against your opponent's points.
well a technically bond persons are needed in teams,but their role is limited to just an advisor or consultant,which is also a need...
In my opinion, i shall choose option 2 kind of people willing to do anything for a project. The reason is, if i have any technical bond person who doesn't have the sense of teamwork in my team then it would disturb the harmony and which will surely going to affect the project performance.
Instead, if i have a unit of willing and dedicated people and if in case they stuck up at any thing because of their lack of knowledge/ experience. It will be my resposibility to guide them to enhance their potential.
As someone rightly said... "You can awake a person in sound sleep but you can't awake him if anybody who's just making a show"
Good answer scorpionmaks but I have a doubt - Do you think those technical people just make a show? What kind of show they make? They join your team for making shows? I am totally confused about this "show" word. I feel if he is technically bond person and has capability to mke your project a success, then what kind of "show" he/she will make?
Please clear me about this "making a show" thing.
@ scorpionmarks : its true a technically bond person has an ego,but they are straight and if handle properly can travel any distance to achive your goal!! unfortunately poeple cant handle them and declare they have attitude problem!!!
No body is perfect in everything!!
What if a person is technically sound in one subject and we need to work on some other subject as well with the same team. A person who has desire to learn can beat anyboy at that time. Thats why I told that answer of this question depends upon the situation of the proect, otherwise this will remain a open ended debatable topic.
The "making a show " thing suggests that the person is not actually sleeping but pretending to be in a sound sleep.
Here i assumed a technical bond person with selfish attitude towards the project.
We tried every possible thing to motivate the tech bond person but he's still not willing to contribute towards project's success just because his own ego. Then u can't much rely upon him.
I agree if that bond person has the capability to make the project successfull we must respect his views but unless and untill he keep aside his egoistic behaviour.
I agree with what u said "they are straight and if handle properly can travel any distance to achive your goal!! ". But it's not always true that every tech bond person is egoistic.
The knowledge and experience always deserves top respect. But here i assumed the bond person who's actually using them to satisfy his own desires and not for the project success.
PS: Plz. correct me if unknowingly i'm getting away from actual topic
Agreed,In fact the when the word team comes in mind is different poeple coming from different background coming together to achive exceptional,and a team is made up of deifferent team members having varied backgrounds!!!
No more debate on this from me now!!!
I opt for second option .
because as said by crazyboy if the person is technically sound in one subject and in mean time if we want to do the project which is entirely different from the technology in which he is good.
At that time there arises the topic of attitude ,the person who is technically sound will think in negative way in spite of learning the new technology.
thus i will prefer the member who are eager to learn things and has the desire to complete the project because i'l come under this category
ok Well debated guys, now comes my one more question for you all
From one of my post in this thread, I made cleared that we are not talking for people who have both capabilities:
1. Technical Bond
2. Strong will to do anything for your project
Reason was because evryone would prefer such people to see as their team member.So no more say about "depend on situation" ok .
Now here I have observed that majority of CEans goes with option no 2 and not option1 , so can you guys answer something about this -
"Why do companies give preference to a technical bond person while doing recruitments, why not they look for persons with strong will power but average technical skills? "
Do they think that that technical bond person will never be a problem for them and will always be on a safer side rather than option2 type people?
Do they think that a strong will person's dedication & learning skills is useless for their company?
Anyone has any ideas for my this question? Please make the things clear to me. Expecting answers atleast from option2 voters.
@Shalini : Is there any company giving preference to tech bond guys who dont have will to do a project..? If yes Let me know the company name?
At the time of recuritment compnies do stress more on attitude and willingness to learn.
I agree with you...But they give same preferences to tech skills..
