Workshop: Leading in a Technology Organization

One-day session (two 3-hour modules)

In the digital world, IT has the ability to truly add business value like never before.

Learn how to be a strategic thinker with the agility and emotional intelligence to inspire others, lead through ambiguity, and drive tangible business value.

Workshop: Consulting Skills—Becoming the Trusted Advisor

Modules 1 through 4 (3 hours each)

By learning more about your client, how their business works, and their strategic and personal goals, you will build stronger relationships and become a trusted resource for your clients.

month 7
Workshop: Marketing a Technology Organization

Modules 1-4 (3 hours each)

Most people perceive marketing as something only the marketing department does. As a result, most IT professionals underutilize this important skill and end up functioning as reactive, product-pushing order takers. High-performing IT organizations leverage marketing to showcase their value. This two-day workshop will help your IT organization focus on benefits and solutions instead of features and products, and will guide you through a process for building a marketing plan that is scalable depending on what you plan to market, and to whom.
