A one-day workshop explaining today's most popular technologies and how they work

Download Syllabus


Technology is disrupting every single industry from brick and mortar retail to metals and mining and is becoming a critical driver of competitive advantage creation. Companies who adapt and innovate will sustain while others that choose to not or adapt too slowly will die. It is critical that business and finance professionals have a solid understanding of how today's key technologies work so that they can have more meaningful conversations with their technical teams.

This course is not a programming-based course and instead covers what today's relevant technologies are and how they work. Attendees will leave with a deep understanding of the "what" and "how". Armed with this knowledge, they can approach traditional business and finance problems with a technological eye and create and sustain competitive advantages.

A computer is not necessary for the training although can be used to access workshop slides.
