Got Business Domain Knowledge? Here are five tips.

Here is some very specific techniques for studying and learning about the business domain.

1. Subscribe to the core business trade journals.  Every industry has trade journals.  For example,  the health care industry has Health Management Technology, Radiology Today, Digital Healthcare & Productivity, and Government Health IT.    All of these are free publications.

2.  Go to trade conferences that support the core business instead of just technical conferences and join subject matter expert groups.

3.  Read your companies annual report.  There is a lot of industry information it!

4.  Read your competitors annual reports.  Again, a ton of industry information!

5.  Visit the office of executive management (business side).  Ask the secretaries what the  executives are reading.  Explain to the secretary that you are trying to improve your business acumen. Trust me, this is a great idea.   Try to read what the business is reading.
