Overview

In an age where technology and data are rapidly transforming every industry, technically skilled staff are key to gaining a competitive advantage.
 
Non-technical professionals are constantly exposed to technical terminology that they struggle to understand. This damages productivity on both sides, as barely-briefed IT staff are struggling to deliver on expectations.
 
“46% of developers cite poor team or organisation management as the reason why software projects fail” according to an International Data Group survey.
 
While non-technicals continue to struggle to communicate with their software project team, projects are delayed, run over budget or worse – they never see the light of day.
 
The demand for technical fluency has grown to the point that 75% of executives surveyed by Deloitte believe they will need technical training in the next two years.
