2006 - Manager Mechanics LLC begins with publishing of the book
Manager Mechanics: Tips and Advice for First-Time Managers. The goal of this book was to increase the
chance of success for new managers. The "street smart and down-to-earth" approach of the book was extremely well received and spawned the idea for a series of general management & leadership classes.
January 2009 - Decision was made to offer full-service management training
We began with a broad list of New Manager Training course offerings, delivered in classroom, webinar and eLearning format to maximize the blended learning experience and provide delivery flexibility to our clients.
2010 - Began specializing in IT Management and Leadership training
It was apparent that Manager Mechanics' unique market niche was a focus on Information Technology (IT) management & leadership training, namely, teaching techies to be managers, based on our deep experience in IT management.
While we still offer general foundation-type management courses, because of client demand, Manager Mechanics focuses on the development and delivery of top-notch courses aimed squarely at the management and leadership training needs of Information Technology (IT) organizations and professionals.
We understand the unique challenges of managing IT. Most important--we understand how to teach staff to excel as managers in IT. Our classes are designed and written by a CIO-level executive with over twenty-five years of IT management experience.
We combine the strength of our IT background with proprietary technology and blended learning to provide superior training in a choice of formats, as well as automated training needs assessments and online testing using our Survey Plus Platform, and one-on-one manager mentoring.
Also during 2010, we expanded our product line. We began offering business ethics classes such as Sexual Harassment Prevention, Managing Diversity, and Manager Ethics. These classes were added because of our belief in the importance of business ethics.
2011 - Became the governing body of two IT management certifications
The ITMLP © and ITMLE © were created under the watchful eye of senior-level executives from key business market sectors acting as a Board of Advisors.
2012 - ITMLP © and ITMLE © continue to gain popularity and recognition
The ITMLP © and ITMLE © certifications are now being offered around the country through our business partner and university network.
Today, in addition to our Three Day Certification Boot Camps . . .
We offer more than twenty IT management related classes complete with interactive exercises and business cases.
We offer these classes in a variety of delivery vehicles including tradition classroom-based, self-paced eLearning, live webinar-based and avatar-based virtual world environments, both directly and through a group of superior business partners.
