Technology Analyst Program

Bringing the Value of Technology to Business

The relationship between Technology and Business nowadays is much more multifaceted than simply identifying the technology that meets an organisation’s needs. Industry 4.0, Big Data, The Internet of Things, Blockchain, Machine Learning, Robotic Business Automation and the Intelligent Enterprise exemplify that technology is an active – not passive – participant in business.

Technology thereby has as much an impact on business as any other factor that gives an organisation its direction. Technology must not unduly influence the organisation’s purpose, but it shouldn’t be underestimated either. Aligning technology with business value that brings both together for maximum benefit is where the Technology Analyst plays the pivotal role.

The Technology Analyst leverages technology to improve customer experience, new channels to the market, increase effective decision making, and to do more, faster and reduce cost while improving the organisation’s capabilities in working with technology.

The Technology Analyst certification provided by LEADing Practice and the Global University Alliance is uniquely designed to meet today’s business needs of today with those of tomorrow. The Technology Analyst instils new cross functional skills that support business and IT equally, bridge value gaps and heighten the combination of business and technology. The Technology Analyst is an enabler, with an ability to adapt, collaborate, create, invent, and reinvent business capabilities by aligning with the right technology despite its complexities.

The Technology Analyst Program including Individual Performance Coaching is offered as a 5 days training program and is designed and certified by LEADing Practice and the Global University Alliance.

Technology Analyst Disciplines

Developed by LEADing Practice in partnership with the Global University Alliance and industrial leaders in the market, the Technology Analyst certification program covers technology analysis, systems and business analysis. It covers an analytical and modelling framework for integrating IT, technology platforms and infrastructure with strategy, innovation, value, requirements and complexity management.

The Technology Analyst certification is awarded by an in-depth education program combined with a personal project that becomes the foundation upon which to apply standards and receive individual performance coaching.

Individual Performance Coaching

It is only through coaching and building on the participant’s existing knowledge that capabilities are gained and applied.

Individual Performance Coaching is an integrated element of the Technology Analyst education and training program to ensure that the frameworks, methods, approaches, and modelling principles are customized, adopted and applied in a real-world project setting with a personalized action plan.
