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. Leaders gain an understanding – introductory, intermediate or advanced (depending on customization) of the technologies that are supporting their organization now, and driving future innovation. From the web and mobile to wearables and the internet of things, in order to analyze their implications on business strategy and ROI. Upon completion leaders are also better able to specify software needs and understand how to manage software developers to compete more effectively on the digital battlefield.

If relevant to the client organization, participants gain visibility into the critical and non-intuitive best practices in digital product management used by the most successful and innovative software development teams today, so that they can learn how to integrate the work of engineering teams and projects into larger strategic goals.
