Course Overview

This Online Master Class covers foundational skill sets in connecting and integrating business & technology strategies to achieve a competitive edge in the Enterprise Architecture (EA) context.

This online course is a primer of the one-day physical classroom course Business Technology Strategy Master Class. This is itself a distillation of four-day classroom course Business Technology Strategy (BTS) which is required to certify for Associate (CITA-A®). The online course materials are directly derived from IASA course syllabus.

To fit the format & time constraints of an online class, the 3 workshops of the 1-Day classroom experience would not be offered. Some course materials are also omitted. Also, the depth of coverage for concepts may not always be the same as that of the classroom experience.

However, students are getting a 70% primer of the one-day classroom course, and a fantastic short introduction to the four-day certification course.
Completion for this online course do not confer credit for BTS towards the CITA-A® qualification. A PDF course completion certificate would be given to those requiring it. Classes are conducted in English.
