What does it mean to be a trouble-shooter?
Troubleshooting is the analysis and solving of serious problems for an organisation. Troubleshooting can take many forms, whether you’re hired to fix a poorly designed system, to reduce costs, to fix a product or to improve systems quality. Trouble-shooter’s are usually hired for a very short period of time by organisations who expect EVERYTHING to be solved as quickly as possible.
Years of experience and product knowledge are key in order to be seen as an expert in your field, but also the ability to have worked on different projects globally. Even though the countries I have worked in are all engineered differently, I am proud to say that I am still using the same trouble shooting techniques I learnt 10 to 15 years ago.
My advice to you: learn how to master your technique, along with your ability to adapt to any organisation’s needs. This will help you become an expert in your field and stand out from the crowd.
