As an executive, manager or entrepreneur, you are more reliant than ever upon technology – hardware, software, systems, networks – to achieve your organization's goals and objectives. In a world where digital technology is increasingly disrupting industries outside of tech domains – from the examples of Uber to AirBnB – executives need to be digitally literate in order to stay relevant and competitive. Furthermore, future success will be driven by the ability to find and direct the best technical talent.
This program is customized for every client organization to focus on the most relevant technical trends, tools and resources for their business at this moment in time.
