Hello. So, we're getting better about explaining why and how we made changes to the structure of MIcrosoft Certification that we announced in November 2005, but I know that we aren't even half-way there to get all customers and employers totally familiar and comfortable with what the new titles (MCTS, MCITP, MCPD) mean, or how to translate them when we are used to talking about MCAD, MCSD, MCSE, MCDST...

One idea to help is to give yous guys (that was not a typo, i said yous guys, because i am Microsoft's in-house lady mob boss) some stuff to help get the word out. Like, a short PowerPoint deck with speakers notes (background and purpose of the new structure, one-slide views of all the new paths, and an idea of where the classic certs (on older MSFT technology) and new gen certs run in to each other)--or a better piece of collateral that explains what you think your peers/manager would want to know? Maybe we could do something where you tell us who you presented the material to (user groups or your organization?) and then we send you a New Gen Rocker! leather jacket (just kidding, but maybe soemthign)? Do we need to do a road-show at events? In any case, I'm planning kind of a train-the-trainer session for April or May to talk JUST about the new gen structure. Any other suggestions in the meantime?
