Help for the new IT manager

Management requires a skill set separate from the technological one that probably landed you your promotion. Most companies don't offer management training. But TechRepublic offers a number of sources to help you get on the right track as a new IT manager.

Because of your awe-inspiring dedication and technical brilliance, you've been promoted to IT manager. You know the latest in security and data storage and enterprise apps, but do you know how to manage people? It's not as easy as you may think. In fact, unless you get off on the right track, you could commit management blunders from which you may never recover. Unfortunately, about half of the companies out there don't implement any kind of formal training for new managers.

TechRepublic does, however, offer a number of sources to help the new IT manager get on the right track. Take a look at these articles written with the input of experienced managers.
