I am pleased to share with you an educational initiative that LammTech is launching this fall, called the Leadership Series.
Information technology management for small and midsized businesses has gone through a lot of change over the past 20 years. In the early days of personal computers and peer-to-peer networks, a technical professional was typically paid by the hour, on an as-needed basis. In contrast, today’s Internet involves sophisticated networks, government compliancy requirements, intellectual property theft, destructive hacking, and much more. As a result, the broad range of expertise required to adequately protect your information technology investment—and for that matter, your business—has dramatically changed.
The first question I’m typically asked by small business owners is, “Where do I start?” Their voice often has more of a sense of dread than enthusiasm.
For over 25 years I have worked with clients, helping them navigate not only the changes in technology, but also helping them realize the financial benefit of a well-managed information technology investment.
We offer a 4-part series that includes
- 1. Establishing what you need to know to protect your data and your business
- 2. Understanding the differences in IT support and determining what is right for you
- 3. Determining what your true IT costs are in order to create a plan
- 4. Consolidating your knowledge to create an annual budget that allows you to transform your IT spend into a worthwhile investment
Best of all—we can do this in small steps, which will allow you to become knowledgeable in the world of IT management. This series is not for technical people. It is tailored for principals, owners, and C-level executives who have P&L responsibilities.
I invite you to visit our website and register for one of our upcoming sessions. I hope to see you there!
