Mobile & Wireless Slideshow: What Are Your Mobile Workers Really Doing?
By Don Reisinger | Posted 03-03-2011
A recent report from Forrester Research, "The Rise of Wannabe And Maverick Mobile Workers," explores the changing mobility profile of today's workforce. We highlighted Forrester's profiles of two types of workers - Mobile Mavericks and Wannabes - in our report "Mobile Mavericks and Wannabes: A Workplace Invasion?" This time around, we're going to explore Forrester's findings about what these employees are actually doing when they go mobile. Forrester defines "mobile mavericks" as those who purchase and use smartphones on their own for work purposes. "Mobile wannabes" are defined as those workers who are often at their desks and, therefore, are not considered by IT to be among the company's mobile workers.
