The Information Technology Management and Leadership Institute (ITML Institute) is a leading provider of IT leadership, interpersonal communication and business skills training, as well as the governing body for professional and executive certifications in IT management.

The Information Technology Management and Leadership Executive Certification Bootcamp, created and delivered by the ITML Institute, is ideal for seasoned IT Managers and IT Directors (managers of managers) who wish to enhance their current job performance, position themselves for promotion, accelerate their upward mobility and get a seat at the business strategy/decision-making table.

IT executives must be more than just technical. They must have well-developed business skills; think like a CIO; understand the business of IT; possess both tactical and strategic capabilities; and have the ability to foster innovation, resiliency and productivity.

This three-day, fast-moving and highly interactive bootcamp contains topics specifically designed to prepare mid-level IT executives in large IT shops for higher levels of management responsibility and provide CIOs of smaller IT shops (30 people or less) with additional tools to help maximize their business impact.

This course was developed by an experienced CIO, and then vetted by a board of senior IT industry executives. Those who successfully complete the ITML Executive Bootcamp and final exam bring credible and validated industry knowledge to the organizations they serve.


Knowledge and experience as a seasoned IT Manager or IT Director (managers of managers).
