PROGRAMME IN STRATEGIC TECHNOLOGY & OPERATION ROADMAPPING (STORM)

STORM_Banner

Strategic Technology and Operation Roadmapping (STORM) is a technology adoption as well as a product and business operation planning tool that is suitable for SMEs, MNCs or any organisations looking to create a roadmap to deal with fast-changing developments in their line of business. Partly adapted from Cambridge University’s T-Plan, the programme is complemented by an array of corporate strategy planning tools that facilitate the development of a company’s mission, vision, operational excellence, product innovation, technology and market intelligence. The programme in STORM aims to create a talent pool that comes equipped with the knowledge, skills, and hands-on experience in designing and conducting strategic planning activities for corporate entities in Singapore.




Testimonial

STORM 1

"Helped me organise the business planning process into a more in-depth and organised process.

Irving is very knowledgeable and you can tell from his in-depth application of industry experience."


Mr Philip Hay,
Participant from May 2021 intake

STORM 2

"I liked that the course is very hands-on, and it takes everyone through an complete OTR process albeit very condensed. The lessons, tools and frameworks provided were very helpful to reinforce the OTR process. The trainers were also very engaging and open to sharing their own facilitation and OTR experience.

Jeff knows his stuff and has been very helpful in guiding us through the details and intricacies of a good OTR process."


Mr Jonathan Pua,
Participant from May 2021 intake
