Training for IT strategy, planning and management

Digital transformation/IT strategy course

Digital disruption is no longer an innovation of the future, it has occurred. Having an efficient, secure and reliable digital technology in your organisation has never been more important. But a digital strategy developed by a consultant can cost anywhere between $20,000 and $80,000 (or more), which is beyond the reach of most not-for-profit organisations.

Take a course in tech strategy and management that will help you chart a path for your organisation. Develop an understanding of the reasons to develop a digital strategy, how to go about it and where to start.

Connecting Up's IT Strategy on a Plate course (23 Feb - 11 May 2022) is an affordable methodology for creating a detailed, effective digital Strategy for an organisation. It guides not-for-profits through the development of an affordable and effective digital transformation strategy for their organisation within a consultative educational framework.

This 12-week webinar program features 9 hours of instruction supplemented by 12 hours of homework. Instruction consists of 6 fortnightly webinars running for 1.5 hours each. Each webinar includes a comprehensive presentation, group discussion and exercises. The slides, video recordings, templates and homework will be available after each session. You can watch an overview of the course here.

The course is suitable for senior management and digital technology admin in any not-for-profit and community organisation without an adequate plan for investments in digital technologies.

The topics covered include:

  • Why the need for an digital Strategy, and how digital transformation can assist organisations
