IT/IS is a relatively new discipline in many organisations (compared to traditional functions such as finance or sales), and is developing rapidly. The rapid pace of change of technology drives major changes in the way that corporations and other organisations must operate to remain competitive or cost effective, especially in the case of non-profit and government bodies. IT/IS is at the heart of contemporary organisational strategy.

A common view is that IT/IS must align its strategy with the business strategy in order to succeed, but we believe that this view has now become obsolete due to the pivotal role that IT/IS play in the day-to-day running of an organisation. Modern organisations need an integrated operating model that combines all systems and processes in a seamless manner, free of boundaries.

This course takes a practical and pragmatic view in explaining the fundamentals of strategic thinking and then translates this into the need for enterprise architecture that encompasses the way the organisation wishes to operate. It then integrates different processes and systems to achieve this.

It is also suitable for Managers/Supervisors and professionals in other functions who wish to deepen their understanding of IT/IS management and how it can increase business performance.

People who have attended this course include:

  • IT/IS Managers

  • Senior Managers
  • Vice Presidents
  • Programme/Project Managers
