Dear Entrepreneur: graduating from ship Captain to ship Builder is a radical new way for business owners to think. We're so used to sailing the ship we rarely think seriously about sending the ship to sea with us staying back on land. But on-shore is a powerful place to be - you can be researching new routes and ports, consider building a second ship... so much is possible in your business when you aren't burdened by "doing" all the work. http://www.GreatAssistant.com

The head of the French firm helping to build Australia’s $50 billion fleet of new submarines has admitted it faces a significant battle to find a qualified and experienced local workforce. Herve Guillou, CEO of French firm Naval Group, told Fairfax Media this week that the firm is practically having to recruit workers “one-by-one”. While there are many young, university-educated people they can train from scratch, older and experienced managers are hard to find. “My worry is always that people confuse education with experience. These are very, very different,” he said. “Finding people with a diploma is not so difficult, finding people with experience and managerial skills is more difficult … It’s nearly a one-by-one exercise.” Naval Group – formerly called DCNS – won the contract last year...
