Consider:
New Horizons Enjoys Unparalleled Status in the IT Training Franchise Industry
New Horizons is the world’s largest independent IT training company, with 300 computer training centers in 70 countries (and counting). Founded in 1982, New Horizons is also the official training partner for technology leaders such as Microsoft, Cisco, CompTIA, and VMware, Microsoft’s largest training provider. As such, New Horizons delivers more than 40 percent of all authorized Microsoft training worldwide.
We’re also the world’s largest Cisco-authorized training partner. New Horizons is especially proud of the fact that it’s ranked in the top 5 percent of the industry for training quality and customer satisfaction. For people who aspire to grow, status and name recognition with the IT training franchise industry are valuable commodities.
New Horizons Boasts an Enviable and Established Business Model
Businesses thrive when two key components of their business model—the “internal constitution” and the “external alignment”—are disciplined yet forward-looking, say Harvard Business School researchers Ramon Casadesus-Masanell and John Heilbron in The Business Model: Nature and Benefits. With the former, “firms make choices about how to organize their employees’ activities so that the manipulation of their material and other resources produces value in the form of a marketable product or service.”
With the latter, “firms make choices about which external parties they will negotiate with and which transactions they will participate in.” Since the researchers assert that a business model is “an act of will,” then New Horizons’ fully vetted and tested business model is a triumph. It is built on three tenets: providing innovative training solutions adaptable for any individual or business, maintaining an aggressive sales system, and delivering a complete franchisee training and support in the industry.
New Horizons Offers Comprehensive and Ongoing Training
Like many of your predecessors, you might come to New Horizons with a background in management, leadership, or sales. This background—as well as a keen understanding of information technology—should serve you well. It should also provide a good foundation for all that New Horizons will teach you, especially about how to grow a successful business through sales management, team leadership, and operational management.
New franchisees are trained on New Horizons’ training methodologies, current industry trends, and the latest cutting-edge technologies. Then, they’re invited to attend yearly conferences on industry trends, sales techniques, performance standards, personnel training, and new innovations. You should expect the world’s premier IT training franchise to extend the finest training to its franchisees, and New Horizons delivers.
