Course overview

The ICT sector is irrevocably going into the direction of agile and lean work. More and more companies are using DevOps. ICT is fully involved in digital transformation by thinking along with the business departments. All this should help create value and customer experience. To create and support ICT-services, a lot of companies embrace the ITIL© service management processes.

This means that ICT employees need to get to know these new tendencies and discover their benefits. This will motivate them to replace 'old school' methods with the modern ways of working. During this training, we give a powerful overview that invites the participants to reflect on where these new tendencies can bring added value for their company.

Who should attend this training

Every manager and employee in technology departments who:

  • Want to inform themselves of the new tendencies through a balanced overview in one workshop

  • Want to find out which good practices are certainly worthwile to use

  • Want to create a new mindset for themselves or for colleagues: how do we get out of old school thinking?

  • Feel a need to start working differently due to pressure from the business and the changing customer needs.

Course Objectives

The training is pragmatic: we use a minimum amount of theory and provide many pragmatic examples and cases that encourage implementation in your own environment. The aim is to find out what works best for you so that you can come to your own 'framework of common sense', in which your way of working is improved by the concepts you learned about in this training.

Prerequisites

There are no mandatory prerequisites for this training.
