Topics in Business Skills

Today's data center and cloud environments have converged infrastructures and management tools, and with the advent of virtualization technologies like VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, external SAN and NAS storage is becoming a standard.

A Practical Introduction to Cloud Computing

Many common definitions of Cloud Computing are completely wrong.

Topics in Personal Skills

Customer Care: Getting it Right

How people are treated by organizations when they first make contact can be crucial. As the saying goes, if you don't look after your customers, someone else will. Developed by highly respected author, educator, and expert in communication skills, Professor Bernard Moss, this training is ideal for anyone whose role brings them into face-to-face contact with the public in private, voluntary, or public sector organizations. This course provides an excellent foundation for high-quality customer care.

Getting Started with Reflective Practice

Reflective practice is the ability to think about and reflect on your specific actions. Learn to pay critical attention to what you did, what happened, and decide what to do differently. Reflective practice has been emphasized for a while, although the strength of this emphasis is not generally matched by the degree of clarity on what reflective practice is, why it is important, or how to actually do it. This course is for people who are new to the reflective practice and want a better understanding of what it is all about.
