What do IoT, blockchain, AI and RPA mean to you? If you’re from a non-tech background, you might have heard of them – but you might not realise the impact they can have. They’re technologies that are shaping the way we work – and professionals in all sectors need to understand them to succeed in our increasingly digital world.
Does this mean you need to become a tech whizz? Not at all. It means you need to develop the knowledge and skills to assess different types of technology and better understand tech professionals. When you understand what they do – and why it’s important – you’ll be able to benefit from their expertise. You’ll be able to make decisions – and feel confident that they’re the right ones.
