I'm in a technical IT position, an IT Technician. However I'm better at managing, making decisions and analyzing rather than fixing up a blown up capacitor or installing OS to a new machine. I've no education though, yet I read a lot at home, and I've done some management-related work, even though technically (which means I had a different attitude towards it) it wasn't an important role/project. Since those projects were "childish," publicizing them doesn't make sense. So, how should I go about getting into a management position without education? Some extra background: I know for sure that I can't get a promotion in the company I work for at the moment, because the manager is of the kind that is past-oriented, detail-oriented, disorganized, inefficient. I'm doing my best to not challenge him, as I'm basically the grunt guy. There aren't many IT companies in my country, and very few big companies (less then I have fingers on a single hand). Going into management for a different company would be an option, but I don't know any other industry as well as the IT industry, nor am I interested as much. But I wouldn't mind, as long as I'm capable of doing my job well and enjoy it. About me: My personality is... Well, imagine one of the two main kinds of a boss, I'm the type that's driven, ambitious, future-oriented, logical, efficient, open for new things. I'm a male in my early 20s from Europe. At the moment, I'm quite poor, and my salary is hilarious, so can't start a project requiring lots of funding myself.
