What does a vCIO do? IT Productivity Training Workshops

We are continuing our series that gives back to the industry answering the question, “What does a vCIO do?” and each article will outline a specific service offering of Outsourced CIO LLC in the day and the life of a vCIO.  Some call this “virtual” Chief Information Officer or “fractional” CIO (we prefer fractional as the “vCIO” term has become a buzzword and misleading – see our FAQ on this) and for the sake of this series, we will be changing the “v” to mean “VALUED” CIO.  Because the vCIO creates value for growing businesses who might not otherwise be able to afford a Chief Information Officer.  Our topic for today is “IT Productivity Training Workshops”

IT Productivity Training WorkshopsThis is a quarterly project estimated at 5-hours.

Deliverable: Live or web-based training in three topics: Personal Productivity (calendar, to-dos, notes, contacts, email); Team Productivity (collaboration, file sharing, meeting scheduling, email, instant messages); Process and Project Management (popular applications that boost project and process management).

Description:  Problem:  The business landscape is nothing if not dynamic: applications, devices, and modes of connectivity change and versions are released constantly. Without an execution strategy to impart IT awareness, we risk losing the opportunity, to collaborate more effectively, communicate more fluidly, and work more smoothly in general, and the threat rises of losing ground to the competition. Although the biggest expense is HR, very few companies proactively train their people in so much available IT productivity.

Benefit:  This service aims to give functional proficiency in Personal Productivity (calendar, to-dos, notes, contacts, email), Team Productivity (collaboration, file sharing, meeting scheduling, email, instant messages) and Process and Project Management (popular applications that boost facilitate them). In this way, people learn to manage themselves, coach others and formulate great teams together.
