Technology Analyst Program

Why the certification is relevant

The relationship between Technology and Business 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 innovation and transformation. Technology thereby has as much an impact on business as any other factor that gives an organisation the ability to transform.

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

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 the complexities.

Aligning technology with business value that brings both together for maximum benefit is where the Technology Analyst plays a pivotal role. The Technology Analyst leverages technology to improve customer experience, new channels to the market and increase effective decision making.

They also increase efficiency and reduce cost whilst improving the organisation’s capabilities in working with technology.

The Technology Analyst Program can be integrated into any relevant organisation. It does so by adding theory, practice and modelling capabilities to the practitioner’s skill set.

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.

The participant will discover how to drive forth fundamental changes within their organization and to achieve the objectives set in both innovation and transformation projects.

Upon successful completion of this program, you will become a certified Technology Analyst.
