JOHANNESBURG, GAUTENG, SOUTH AFRICA, April 6, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Great IT leadership is essential in every business. Companies benefit from an executive who can make the most of the industry’s technical advances and motivate people within and beyond the IT department.

Technology needs to be at the heart of every organisation, and the IT leader must have a place on the board with a voice as loud as any other in the company.

On the 6th and 7th of May, Principles of IT Leadership will examine groundbreaking techniques for leading, managing and coaching technology teams. This online workshop will focus on the important leadership role that senior IT executives play within an organization.
