Training for IT strategy, planning and management

Digital transformation/IT strategy course

Digital disruption is no longer an innovation of the future, it has already occurred. Having efficient, secure and reliable digital technology in your organisation has never been more important. However, a digital strategy, developed by a consultant, can cost anywhere between $20,000 and $80,000 (or more). This 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. Gain an understanding of the reasons you should develop a digital strategy, including how to go about it and where to start.

Connecting Up's IT Strategy on a Plate course 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. Register your interest for IT Strategy on a Plate – 2024.

This 12-week webinar program features 9 hours of instruction, supplemented by 12 hours of homework. Instruction consists of 6 fortnightly webinars delivered over 1.5 hours each. Each webinar includes a comprehensive presentation, group discussion and exercises. The slides, video recordings, templates and homework are made available following each session. 

The course is suitable for senior management and digital technology admin in any not-for-profit and community organisation who don't have an adequate plan for investment in digital technologies.
