Technology is drastically reshaping the business world. And in this world marked by tight competition, organizations are required to innovate and develop at the speed of light to remain ahead – regardless of what industry they belong to, or which countries they operate in.

This exhilarating environment requires leaders who adapt, learn continuously, and understand that technology is key to take their organizations to a more beneficial, optimized, and connected reality.

Our online program, Management of Technology: Roadmapping & Development, provides an overview of the principles, methods, and management tools for technologically enabled systems and organizations.

During the program, you will walk the path of technology through its history, its different tools and methods, its fundamental limits, and the theory and empirical evidence for technology evolution over time. All this is supported by a rich set of examples and practical exercises from aerospace and other domains such as transportation, energy, communications, agriculture, and medicine.

By the end of the program, equipped with this knowledge, you’ll be able to lead the implementation of technology in your organization.
