Course Overview

The current COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it significant challenges and issues; and has forced organisations to make radical changes to their normal operations, a central pillar of which has been, where possible, personnel working remotely. Many organisations have little serious experience on how to establish such remote working as a part of the ‘new normal’.

The course focus is on four key areas:

  • The leadership and management of remote teams and operations
  • The deployment of information, communications and technology (ICT) platforms, systems and tools to effectively and successfully build remote teams’ and operational capacity and capability
  • How such ICT platforms, systems and tools can enhance, enable and empower remote teams and operations in a robust, resilient and agile manner.
  • How such ICT tools can enhance communications, collaboration, performance and productivity, making a significant contribution to SMARTER, agile and dynamic organisational and business excellence.
