IT Leadership
قيادة تكنولوجيا المعلومات
Empower Business Growth And Generate Outstanding Performance To Increase Company Value
4 – 7 December 2017
The Conrad Hotel, Dubai, UAE

In the current business world companies are striving for business excellence and even customer excellence. This means that their IT service has to support – and often even fuel – the required transformations of the business.

While today’s world is creating serious challenges for our organisations, Information Technology gives us the potential to cope with these challenges and even to utilise them to our advantage while strengthening our company’s external position. However, this requires a shared agenda by the business and the IT disciplines in our organisations, while placing strong demands on the leadership of senior managers from both domains.

The main objective of this course is to help you understand the requirements of IT leadership, as well as assess and develop your competencies accordingly. It will help you understand how a sustainable, strong and agile organisation is achievable with proper co-operation from the employees. This course will teach you how to shape behaviour in a way that such co-operation is achieved; hence leveraging the unique strengths of your organisation and contributing to its innovation and actual transformation.
