IT Funding and Cost Center Management

This IT Funding and Cost Center Management training class provides an introduction to the IT budgeting process. It is ideal for new managers who do not have a budgeting background, seasoned managers that have not had cost center responsibility, and/or anyone who does not have experience in corporate budgeting practices.

This class takes a very narrow view of IT budgeting. It specifically concentrates on the issues, responsibilities, and activities of cost center managers (that is, as a manager responsible for department expenses).

I would definitely recommend this Adwords seminar to anyone struggling on their own to figure things out. An enormous amount of information is explained really well and in a way that's not overwhelming.
