ICT Literacy for Managers

Antwerp, 23rd October 2024

Why you benefit from this course

The impact of ICT decisions on business outcomes has grown with an order of magnitude. A common dictum is that with ICT, your company can grow faster broke than ever before. And if you observe how the life expectancy of business has been gradually reduced with every new decade, there is some truth in this saying.

Management and board members have in most cases a strong legal, financial, marketing or operational background. Very few come from an ICT background, except for ICT companies, of course. So, if you qualify for that description, this course is a must have for you.

The course agenda

Board members and managers charged with ICT governance focus on the end-to-end processes, the products and the organisation’s structure that contribute to the strategy execution. Subject to that focus, is the need to ensure that investments in ICT will deliver on their business value promise as well as having the risks and the potentially negative effects under control. To make sure you do this the right way, these five focus areas will support you to make the optimal assessments and decisions.

Why attend

In one day you will:

  • Learn about the strengths and weaknesses of your present and future information systems

  • Discover the various options and components for data and information analysis

  • Be able to assess the impact of technology on your business strategy

  • Improve your communication with the tech people

  • Make optimum use of information technology in your business plans

  • Know how to embed ICT governance in your daily practice

For future use, you will receive a handout with extra contextual information about the slides plus the book “Business Analysis for Business Intelligence” which clearly leads you from strategy development to analytics implementation.

Book "BusinessAnalysis for Business Intelligence"

Who should attend

This course is ideal for any staff member, line manager, director or board member who wants to make better use of the ICT concepts in his day to day work as well as in his business and task planning.  Are you a specialist in finance, marketing, sales, logistics, HR, advertising, legal or production? Then, this is the most inspirational day of the year for you.

About the contributors to the course

Our contributors have a strong background in linking strategy to ICT and back. Yes, "back" because ICT developments have shaken up entire industries either in one fell swoop or slowly and gradually, without getting noticed by their management. The team that developed the seminar, consists of experienced managers, enterprise architects and board members with an ICT background.
