In a world based on technology, as an IT manager you are an indispensable person, tasked with meeting all of the company’s technological needs – including the implementation, monitoring and maintenance of IT systems.
Regardless of the specific area you work in, as an IT manager you are required to have a strong analytical understanding and good communication skills to coordinate with team members and others around the challenges that arise.
In order to provide the best possible assistance, you must keep up to date with the latest developments, trends and necessary aspects of IT. But how do you make sure you have access to the knowledge and insights that are relevant to you?
In many cases, it can be beneficial to look to others who are familiar with your working reality, but who are not embedded in the same organisational framework as you.
Utilize your network
A professional network group is made up of a tailor-made composition of individuals who have the same professional profile and level of expertise, but who all come from different companies and organisations. The value comes precisely from your differences, where you can assist and help each other with good advice, sparring and feedback on your challenges and ideas that can help ensure continuous development for all.
Having good networking colleagues by your side is worth its weight in gold and gives you a space where you can always air your thoughts and reflections and ensure yourself and your company new knowledge and insights.
Composition is key
Our network teams consist of a mix of experienced specialists with strategic and operational responsibilities. Member titles include Enterprise Architect, UX Designer, Test Manager, Master Data Manager, IT Development Manager or similar.
We have groups for IT managers in small and medium-sized enterprises as well as large companies and corporations.
Stay up to date
The themes of the network meetings vary from time to time and are decided by the network leader in consultation with the rest of the group.
Typically, they are based on both different issues, challenges and cases from the members themselves and on current trends and tendencies in leadership and leadership development.
You may encounter themes such as:
A valuable network
