A manager’s ability to deliver positive business outcome is nonnegotiable, technology must cut business risks and generate new opportunities and growth. This is why it is important for IT managers to have training, to be focused on the needs of the company when selecting and recommending technology to management.
Before recommending a technological solution, take time to understand the step by step implications to management. What is the bottom line for the company? What are the changes that need to take place? How does the technology actually help the company in achieving it goals and vision? How much will it cost the company? These are important questions that only training can answer as it deals with strategic managerial thinking.
