In my last post, I emphasized the need your IT people have in training and education, , , it is a key motivator for IT people and ranks as one of the top 3 reasons people say they stay with their company in surveys year after year.
How would you like to have the ability to customize your own training curriculum in minutes and make it available to your employees?
Tom Mochal and I spent three years developing weekly 20 Minute IT Manager (20MITM) training sessions to make a comprehensive training library available to IT managers. There are 162 sessions in the series, each 20 minutes or less in length, , , an ideal time to focus on a specific topic.
Many of our clients host weekly training lunches or early morning training breakfasts for their team where they deliver a 20MITM session while everyone eats. At the end of the session, they discuss the training material and how it applies to their situation or what they can take from the session to improve their business.
The 20MITM sessions focus on 5 major categories that are important for IT organizations in any industry:
- IT management
- Project management
- People management
- Personal development
In these categories, there are dozens of training classes that are appropriate for every IT employee to learn about, not just your IT managers. For instance, all your employees would benefit in learning about:
- Problem solving techniques
- Project roles
- Simple project management tools
- Fundamental status reporting
- Dealing with an unhappy client
- Effective communication tools
- Understanding IT employee work behavior
- Prioritizing your work
- Coping with stress
- Active listening is the key to effective communication

From such a large and diverse list of topics, you could create several training tracks for your staff, , , one for managers and supervisors, one for project managers, one for Help Desk staff, another for the programming support team, , , even one for your desktop technicians.
You could also put the training programs onto your Intranet and make them available for anyone in your company via the Enterprise license.
Create a specific program targeted to a group of people or make it available as needed in your company. The point is that you are making an investment in your people’s education and growing their professional skills, , , and this investment is valuable for your employees and your company.
Why is it valuable? Simple, , , one single tip or tool discussed in any one of the 20MITM sessions could be worth thousands of dollars to your company in cost savings, improving productivity, or avoiding a key risk.
Purchase individual licenses for $499.00 each or an Enterprise license for $2,000.00 that gives anyone in your company access to 162 online training sessions via your Intranet. It also gives you a great vehicle to develop teamwork and improve productivity of your IT organization.
