The courses are for managers and entrepreneurs who require a good overview of the subject area and also some practical implementation of the relevant technologies.

  • Gain an understanding of the overall strategic threats and opportunities
  • Organise your business response to exploit opportunities
  • Learn how to identify and select opportunities
  • Expand your knowledge of the technologies that are available
  • Obtain a realistic, hands-on appreciation of what it takes to implement these technologies

Course structure

Each course has been developed to follow the format below:

Operational

Finding specific opportunities within my business.

What kind of things can this technology do for my business? What technologies are available?
