Behind every thriving business lies a successful growth strategy. Building a technology roadmap through the Operation & Technology Roadmap (OTR) programme will help you form a strategic business plan to grow your business and generate long-term profit.

 

For Enterprises: OTR Phase 1

Through a 5 half-day facilitative workshop series, our facilitators will bring you through a structured format to gain a fresh perspective of the business environment in your industry and how you can capitalise on technology to sharpen your edge.

The COTR process has translated my thoughts into action and reaffirmed our business strategy. I would like to implore traditional businesses to rethink digitalisation as an opportunity for growth and not a threat.
