Ready to take the leap into management?
Well, the first thing you should do before having the conversation with your boss is figure out whether you’re actually qualified to lead. And no, I’m not denying that you’re doing a great job now.
It’s just that there’s a big difference between doing well at your current role and being a good boss. And you won’t be surprised to learn that great management really starts with soft skills—a.k.a., the skills you may not work on as much in your everyday job. You need to know how to work with diverse opinions, inspire others to be productive, and handle difficult situations that pop up out of nowhere.
But like anything, soft skills can be learned. You just need to know the right courses to take.

The functions of management uniquely describe managers’ jobs. The
most commonly cited functions of management are planning, organizing,
leading, and controlling, although some identify additional functions. The
functions of management define the process of management as distinct from
accounting, finance, marketing, and other business functions. These
functions provide a useful way of classifying information about
management, and most basic management texts since the 1950s have been
organized around a functional framework.

Co-management is one of the primary ways to attach your existing Configuration Manager deployment to the Microsoft 365 cloud. It helps you unlock additional cloud-powered capabilities like conditional access.
Co-management enables you to concurrently manage Windows 10 devices by using both Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune. It lets you cloud-attach your existing investment in Configuration Manager by adding new functionality.

When a Windows 10 device has the Configuration Manager client and is enrolled to Intune, you get the benefits of both services. You control which workloads, if any, you switch the authority from Configuration Manager to Intune. Configuration Manager continues to manage all other workloads, including those workloads that you don’t switch to Intune, and
