Organizational development and company culture

Among the needs that TECHNOCompétences has identified in terms of training for IT managers, two topics in this sector need to be further explored. These are intergenerational management and the optimization of workplace training methods.

Intergenerational management is a particularly important topic in IT. That is because the workforce shortage in this sector requires work relationships to be harmonized so that talent can be retained. Contrary to baby boomers and Generation X, who glamorize hierarchy, Generation Y rejects authority. It is thus important to learn how to work around the ideas and values of each generation.

Optimizing workplace training methods has proven to be crucial in IT. The tools used in information technology keep evolving. It is important to optimize internal processes for network management, private cloud, infrastructure administration, etc.

  • Intergenerational management
  • Optimization of workplace training methods

IT sales teams

 

The latest study carried out by TECHNOCompétences demonstrates that 34% of sales occur outside of Quebec. Training for IT managers helps sales teams develop a strategic method for selling locally and internationally.

Compensation of the IT sales force must be competitive. It is important to properly choose the compensation strategy that is the most relevant to your employees. New business models allow you to put in place emerging and innovative compensation systems. One of them is the cloud-based compensation system, which is growing increasingly popular.

Selling outside of Quebec requires an adjustment of your employees’ sales approach. To do so, your teams must consider diverse cultures and politico-economic environments in their sales approaches.

Artificial intelligence and business practices

Completing IT manager training on the theme of artificial intelligence is beneficial for several reasons. It provides an understanding of the technologies and data processing necessary for all AI projects. It also allows you to stay informed on government actions related to the regional economic development of AI (see this press release on government investment).

Working with artificial intelligence in business practices calls for having a good grasp of certain laws and ethical issues. Indeed, data use is a sensitive topic that calls for expert knowledge. It also calls for recognizing the skills and positions required to create an AI team.

Finally, completing IT manager training is beneficial to understanding the current AI-related economic models.

  • Understand the founding principles and theories of artificial intelligence
  • Identify the technologies and data processing procedures inherent to implementing artificial intelligence
  • Understand the ethical issues and laws governing the use of data
  • Understand the nature of in-demand jobs and the positions needed to create an AI team
  • Understand the economic models resulting from the use of AI in business and apply them to the company’s reality
