Are you an IT Manager? Do you know of an IT Manager in your user group? If so, then you need to know about this offer.
Microsoft Learning is looking for IT Managers, people who manage teams of IT Professionals, to join a new Advisory Council to help them better understand the values of IT Certifications.
Here is a little more about this opportunity to help shape the future of Microsoft Certifications.
One of the consistent pieces of feedback we hear about the new generation of certifications is "OK, I understand. But certification doesn't matter to my manager." While Microsoft Learning is getting better at getting the word out to IT Professionals about the value of a current certification, MCITP, etc. we're not doing such a good job at reaching the folks who are making hiring decisions and managing IT teams.
We're looking for some experienced folks who manage a team of IT Professionals to work with us as part of the Microsoft Learning IT Manager Advisory Council. The primary objective for this group is to provide input and feedback around key Microsoft Learning strategies and products and to help us build solid recognition at a manager level around the value of certification. Members will share their insight and experiences as IT managers. They will be the voice of the community as we develop offers, tools and materials exclusively for the IT Manager audience.
We'll be holding 3-4 Live Meetings throughout the year. And we'll be holding a full day meeting on Sunday, June 6th prior to TechEd in New Orleans for the North American members of the advisory council. More info here on Born to Learn:
