About the course
We have all seen the world changing around us as technological innovations such as cloud, data technologies, AI, and many more, have emerged. The role of data has changed dramatically in only a few years. As a result, the way technology and data is organised within businesses and the role of the CIO have changed drastically. In addition, digital channels are being used directly by customers and partners. Nowadays, companies face social opinions on their products, services, data and technology usage. All of these changes require an informed response in strategy to remain relevant and thriving as a business.
The organization of data and the complex ecosystem of partners and solution providers are no longer issues strictly assigned to IT-professionals. Executives and senior managers increasingly desire, and are required, to be involved in responsibilities regarding IT. What data creates added value? How do we manage third parties? How can we make our organization invulnerable to changes as a result of technological innovations? It is these questions and more that are addressed in the module Organization and Value of Data and Technology. As a result, you as a manager will gain insight and practical skills to develop new organizational forms and become more agile in responding to (unexpected) changes.
