CIAO Academy: career development aimed at digital leadership

CIAO stands for the ability to think Creative, the heart of Information technology, the power of Adjustment and an Open mind. Competencies of the right brain that are necessary to survive as digital leader. Compared to other sectors, the percentage of women in information technology is extremely low at all levels of the organisation. Few women deliberately choose a study or career in this field. Organisations are missing out on opportunities because of this. Digital leadership needs more than IT skills. It needs the right-brain skills that women bring to the table. Technological developments and business trends such as the Internet of things, robotics, big data, mobile work environment and socials require competencies and skills that are increasingly outside traditional training. RightBrains wants to encourage talented women to take the step to the digital and information technology domain.

The next years of digital transformation will not be about technology but about agility, experimenting and breaking through old patterns. How do we give employees that spot on the horizon in a fast moving context and organisation that becomes more and more unstable? Read more.
