With all due respect, if that's what you want grand... I'm not talking
about training managers... I'm talking about training techies!!!
My personal belief is that you can't train managers... Experience
teaches you good management practice... Management is about making a
team work, in order to do that, you have to have the respect of the
team and you have understand the personalities that make up the
team... That's not something that you can learn in a classroom....
But I digress... What I really wanted to say is...
If you want to teach management or some such, call it that!!! I just
feel that if I go to do a course on computers, I don't want extraneous
bull thrown in with it.... That's all!!!
I hope what I've said makes some kind of sense as my head is a bit the
worse for wear today!!! ;-)
