    Management Effectiveness Training for Techies

    Who would you rather hear from—someone who has ‘read up’ on IT management, or a person who has real-world experience with what works and what doesn’t? Grow draws from both his experience working in the trenches at Microsoft and the knowledge he’s gained from hundreds of conversations with IT managers. Participants take away easy-to-remember, “use now” strategies for creating teams everyone wants to be on—and every IT organization wants to have.
