Press Release Body = May 30, 2007 - Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
The latest launch from Boundless Thinking called "Free Management Tips", offers on-line business training for people looking for a practical alternative to getting an MBA. The focus is on new managers and self-made managers looking for a solid grounding in Business 101. Business Fundamentals, Time Management and Leadership Skills are all addressed in very practical terms.
"Our approach is to boil huge amounts of business information down to their key elements and teach the big picture first. Then we expand and refer back to the basics regularly. The first modules focus on business fundamentals like why businesses are in business, the psychology of what motivates people to buy things, and why businesses are organized the way they are. Too often people skip past the fundamentals and dive into the details of supply chain management or customer service metrics without understanding the big picture." says Daryl Cowie, founder of Boundless Thinking. "I think that is a huge mistake"
The company believes an MBA still provides a great business education, but more and more people are looking for down to earth basics and practical advice. "You don't need an MBA to be a great Manager." says Daryl. "When I was a hiring manager at one of the world's biggest companies, 2 years experience and a display of initiative beat an MBA hands down."
The best candidates for this training are new or aspiring managers, and self-made managers looking for a knowledge boost.Some of the early topics included in the understated "Management Tips" training are: - Why Businesses Are In Business - Why People Buy Things - Why People Get Help - How People Go About Finding Solutions - How Business is Organized to Help Provide Solutions - Driving Top Line Growth - Driving Cost Control - Top 3 Ways to Shrink a Business - Basic Measurements - How Do We Know If We Are Succeeding?
\"It's amazing how people can dive into the details and spend years there without ever getting a view of the big picture.\" says Daryl. \"The worst part is these same people become the ones training the next generation of management. People can only share what they know. We\'ve got to start giving people the foundations early in their careers. Not everyone needs an MBA, but all aspiring managers and leaders should learn the basics of business\".
If you're thinking about an MBA to give your career a boost but you're not sure you can invest the time, consider taking a look at this first.
