PG Programme in Technology Management with KPMG and Edology
“Will AI take away my job,” seems to be the primary question everyone is asking today. There is no simple answer to this, but the truth remains that leveraging AI will help humans do their jobs better, which in turn has the potential to create more jobs. The important thing is to constantly align your skillset to the needs of your industry.
So, what kind of jobs will remain safe in the future? Research shows that the future belongs to professionals who have a combination of tech knowledge and managerial skills. This will help them assess current processes, make informed decisions on how to integrate technology in day-to-day functioning and ensure that they lead efficient and productive teams.
In a rapidly evolving technological landscape, companies that are able to adapt and innovate are the ones that will thrive. This makes techno-managers, who operate at the intersection of technology and management, the driving force behind modern businesses.
Mr. Narayanan Ramaswamy, Partner – KPMG, said, “The digital revolution has ensured that most companies across the globe have more tech teams now than ever. Who is best suited to manage and lead such teams? Professionals who have a solid background in tech and have an equally good understanding of business strategies that can transform their organizations. In other words, techno-managers, i.e., technologists who know how to align their existing tech skills to achieve faster business growth for their organizations.”
“In traditional companies, very few with an IT background could enter top-tier management roles. However, that has changed now. Today most companies with a strong digital footprint aggressively hire candidates who have a solid foundation in technology and are also able to navigate managerial roles. Upskilling by studying both technology and management can help the current IT workforce move up the career ladder and achieve excellence,” Mr. Madhavan Vilvarayanallur, Partner – KPMG.
A techno manager is someone who has a deep understanding of technology and its applications, as well as the ability to manage people, projects, and resources. They are responsible for identifying technology trends, choosing the right tools and systems, and implementing them effectively to drive business growth. They play a crucial role in ensuring that technology and business objectives are aligned.
So how can you become a techno-manager?
Some professionals learn on the job but that can take time. Most prefer to go for an online programme where they can learn from top industry experts about the latest tech innovations. An online course that offers top tech and managerial upskilling is Edology’s 10-month long Post Graduate Programme in Technology Management, in partnership with KPMG.
