COURSE NAME:   Business Resumption and Modernization Accelerator

COURSE CODE:   CCTB424

If you are a decision maker, business owner, manager or Analyst, then this course is for you.

The recovery path forward from the Pandemic and Social Disruption is very different prior to shutting down and we must now emerge with a creative approach as the future may remain unpredictable. The main goal of business over the next few years will be survival and to implement the flexibility to adapt to continuous change. Agriculture, Mining, Energy, Oil and Gas, HHS, Logistics, and other industries all create and share data and resources across the supply chain from feedstock to the consumer.

To enable and support the recovery and growth process, align with changing demands and the transition to flexible operations, we must integrate emerging industrial, digital, and legacy information technologies with the social, political, economic, and medical environment. This requires we change from the old and traditional ways of thinking and understand changing trends, business models, Industrial and enabling digital technologies that are integrated and connected to the past and present social-economic, environmental, and cultural drivers. These drivers are influencing tomorrow’s government and business decisions and in many cases Information Technology is not aligned with current demand changes and does not clearly understand its role in supporting and enabling the desired business stakeholder experiences in a demand driven circular economy.
