Organisations are being exposed to an increasingly dynamic and fast-paced technology landscape. Service providers and consultants, the media, and policy makers are constantly promoting or discussing emerging technologies that may have a substantial – and systemic – impact on our economies and societies. As individuals and as employees, we need to be informed about what technologies are likely to have the most impact, as well as their underlying concepts and potential. This will help us to be informed – and will help our organisations make informed choices.
The ICDL digital skills certification has launched ICDL Insights, new modules designed for current and future business leaders so they can develop a true understanding of emerging trends and technologies that will enable them to consider the full potential of new technologies in their organizations.
ICDL Insights offers overview modules that are contextualised in a practical way. These short, introductory modules provide the conceptual understanding to allow managers who are not IT professionals to consider the potential of technology and have informed conversations with IT professionals or specialists.
