Course Overview

Business Technology Strategy (BTS) is one of our most popular courses, with participation by hundreds of professionals across a broad range of backgrounds and industries.

Too often architects learn to create values for the business through trial and error, creating risks to themselves and their employers in the process.

With BTS training we can put a stop to that. BTS is designed to give you and your team all the tools needed to lift architecture from a mere ‘documentation’ process to the fruition of true business capabilities. Participants will be equipped with the knowledge and key strategic skills to demonstrate the values of architecture and technology from the moment they begin work through the full range of enterprise lifecycle programs.

Master Class – Mastering Information Architecture

If you are unconcerned with attaining certification, and would rather just be familiarised with Information Architecture in day-to-day functions, ATD Solution offers a 1-day Master Class in a classroom setting—it is a high-impact, power-learning introduction to (or refresher of) key Information Architecture concepts.

Master Classes and Online primers are not regularly scheduled training options. Please check the detailed course pages for schedules, or use the notification form above to turn on auto-notification of classes.

Note: This 1-day class is not an adequate preparation for passing the certification exam.
