 ITMLP © Description

The ITMLP © is the first step in the full Certification of the IT Management and Leadership Executive (ITMLE ©). In fact, all ITMLP © materials are 100% applicable toward the full ITMLE © exam.
The ITMLP © components specialize in a set of key IT topics designed to increase the effectiveness of new and would-be IT managers by widening their knowledge of IT, discussing techniques to enhance user support and satisfaction, providing insights into motivating technical professionals, and providing information on the use of various IT best-practices.
Like the ITMLE ©, the smaller ITMLP © contains the rigorous, down-to-earth practical advice, and IT-applicable case scenarios needed to help you distinguish yourself as a superior leader in the highly technical, yet people-driven world of information technology
Developed by an experienced CIO, and then vetted by a board of senior IT industry executives, the ITMLP © shows that those who successfully complete the ITMLP © Final Exam bring credible and validated industry knowledge to the organizations they serve.
The ITMLP © and more advanced ITMLE © certifications offer rigorous, down-to-earth, and practical courses of study that provide current and future IT managers with the well-balanced foundation needed to provide superior competitive IT advantage to their company. . . and to their personal career aspirations.
