Technology in the hands of businessmen


We have a good understanding of the issues facing the Technology Sector and we have worked with some of the industry’s major players such as IBM and Samsung to develop their managers to inspire and engage their people to improve the business’ performance and drive competitive advantage.

The impact of Information Technology has been felt by all of us throughout the world over the past 20 years. Uses of applications and devices that we would never have dreamed possible are now everyday reality for us all, and have come to rely on mobile technology to help us manage our day to day lives.

In the UK, the Technology Sector employs 5% of all workers, and within the UK economy, over 80% of people use technology as part of their job role. The sector is forecast to continue to expand, and to be a key element of business growth coming out of the recession.  It is estimated that employment in the sector over the next decade will grow nearly five times faster than the UK average.

Drivers for change in the sector include:

  • The sector is highly innovative, but also subject to constant technological development. This can present a significant challenge in ensuring businesses and staff are able to adapt to constantly changing technological requirements.

  • Data security, privacy and intellectual property issues are having a considerable impact in the sector with businesses expending significant resources to deal with current requirements and preparing to adapt to a changing legislative landscape.

  • Technology becomes increasingly important as a key driver of business competitiveness.

  • The complexity of modern technology means that many businesses now partner with external expert providers to deliver solutions to customers.This means increasing emphasis is placed on the development of partnership relationships, project and programme management, change management, networking and risk management.

We can develop your managers and staff to deal with these challenges and deliver a fundamental shift in the culture and performance of your business. We have the unique ability to deeply understand your business vision, strategy, and goals and to design development interventions that will deliver significant business benefits.  To learn more about our work in this sector and the impact we have had read our IBM case study.  Alternatively see how our other clients have benefited from our support by visiting What Our Clients Say.
