Specifically for CSIA members, best practices training is intended to help grow your business using the proven best practices of other system integration companies. You'll learn about the intent of the practices outlined in the CSIA's Best Practices and Benchmarks Manual and possible approaches on implementation relevant to your business. The course will provide important information from an outside consultant's perspective, so you'll return home with concrete steps to prepare your company for the future.
The course will consist of two days of interactive classroom training, focusing on those areas that we have found create the greatest difficulty for integration companies as they grow. The intent is to share essential information related to each area of the integrator business so you can move forward with the implementation of the related practices.
This course will be directed at individuals responsible for the implementation of best practices within their respective companies. Typically, this will be the owner or senior manager of a company ranging in size from $2 million $8 million in total revenue.
Presenters: Gordon Cox and Tom Sulda from American Systems Registrar.
