SEATTLE and ASHEVILLE, N.C., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Leading Software Maniacs® (LSM) creates and presents innovative workshops for software developers and managers on how to lead teams to deliver projects on time. Since 2009 as an PMI® registered education provider (R.E.P.), LSM's course offerings award attendees between 3 and 8 PDUs. This October, the Texas Maniacs tour kicks off in Dallas and Austin with plans already in pace for tours throughout the USA in 2015 including the return to the Carolinas/Smoky Mountains in May 2015.
Although there are many workshops available from excellent training vendors, few present a unique way to learn based on a blend of humor and pragmatism in both the course material and class presentation. "Each of our workshops has the stated objective for attendees to learn at least three key leadership techniques that can be put into immediate use," says Ken Whitaker, managing director of LSM. "There is nothing more important than to delight the customer with projects that produce products or services with quality while being on schedule and on budget. That's our training promise."
The best testimonials are from class attendees themselves:
- "... overall the content and material was superb." — Jon S.
- "Great speakers!! Took time to answer attendee questions." — Wendy C.
- "I've been to two other workshops and this one explained agile the best." — Sarah G.
- "Great workshop." — Pat N.
- "Thank you so much for your awesome class." — Shawn P.
LSM has made it easy and risk-free for organizations (companies, PMI chapters, and user groups) to arrange to host a training event.

And one more thing …
LSM is always interested in customer feedback on how they want to learn. Today, a survey comparing live classroom versus self-directed eLearning trends has been posted. The survey takes less than five minutes to fill out and every respondent will receive a copy of Ken Whitaker's popular book "I'm Not God, I'm Just a Project Manager." To fill out the survey, browse to http://www.leadingswmaniacs.com/elearning_survey.html. Results will be made available during the first week of November 2014.
