Practical IT Manager GOLD Series – Pre-launch offer

We are in major transition mode here at MDE Enterprises, so I thought it would be the perfect time to announce a new product to my Practical IT Manager Newsletter and ITLever readers, , , 

, , , and make you a very special offer, , , never offered before and never again.

Yes, we are upgrading our entire MDE infrastructure:

  • New web sites
  • New IT Manager Store
  • New products
  • New training services


I just completed a major rewrite of my first ten books and we have needed to update our web sites for a while. So, , , we are taking the opportunity to completely renovate our web sites, shopping cart, and order fulfillment infrastructure using a WordPress foundation.

We will also be adding entirely new products and services soon.

I took most of 2011 off to focus on the “books rewrite project” and to do some things that will position our company for new product offerings and a renewed training focus for 2012 that will allow us to reach many more IT managers around the world.

Very soon you will start seeing announcements for new books, tools, training, , , and more like you have never seen from our company.

Here is the first offer and it is a significant one, , , and only available to our Practical IT Manager Newsletter subscribers and ITLever readers for a very limited time.

Career planning webinar held for Slovenia and Croatia managers

I held a 1-hour webinar class on career planning for a group of IT managers in Slovenia and Croatia last week. Career planning is one of my favorite topics primarily because I enjoy working with people so much and helping them advance their career.

Your IT employees want and need career planning help. You may need it as well.

One of the most enjoyable things about IT management (in my opinion) is when you work with someone and see their career develop. It is great to see your employees grow and to be able to achieve more in their life, especially when you have a small part in helping them.

I have delivered several webinar presentations now and trying to get a feel for using this format to deliver IT manager training much more in the future.

On my side, I’m trying to get more comfortable and not feel as though I’m rushing the presentation. It’s a matter of gaining a bit more experience in a virtual classroom setting as opposed to a real class with people I can see and interact with.

We have another virtual webinar class planned for this Thursday so I’m excited about meeting with more managers from Europe.

I plan to offer a significant amount of webinar training in 2012 so anyone in the world can attend some of my IT manager training programs. It will also allow me to deliver more IT manager training than ever before. I’m very excited about it.
