There seems to be many free online resources for the hands-on, in-the-trenches IT professional and developer. However, for IT managers who are working on recruiting and managing the in-the-trenches people while setting the direction and strategy of IT for their corporation, there seems to be less available. I’ve found a couple of good general management resources, like the Manager Tools podcasts, but not much specific to IT managers. To that end, we’ve consolidated the resources we have available on one site – www.microsoft.ca/alignIT to make it easy to find what you need. There you’ll find links to relevant podcasts, webcasts, blog posts, events, training and other resources on both technology strategy and people management.
