WORKSHOPS & KEYNOTES: DIGITAL COMPETENCE

Digital transformation is a process that many enterprises and institutions are currently undergoing. That is why IT knowledge and a familiarity with the basics of digitization and data security for companies are essential now and will continue to be essential in the future.

UNDERSTANDING NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND AGILE PROCESSES

In addition to changing requirements of executives and their teams, new technologies and more agile processes provide numerous opportunities for manufacturing and the service sector. To make effective use of them and to anchor them into corporate culture, executives need to aquire and consistently update digital competencies.

In our workshops and lectures on digital competence, participants acquire the very skills they need in order to assess and utilize digitization competently. Furthermore, our further education programs highlight risks that may arise in connection with the use of new IT applications.
