Wits Certificates in Chief Information Officer (CIO) Practice: Levels 1, 2, 3
The Wits Certificates in Chief Information Officer (CIO) Practice -- offered at Levels 1, 2, and 3 -- cover issues relating to technology, strategic (C-level) management, business and human capital management processes, and ICT policy and regulation.
The environments of business and government have become increasingly data-driven. In this context, organisations must undertake effective business re-engineering, ensure effective security measures and risk management, and foster effective utilisation of the Internet for marketing and electronic transactions. An increasingly mobile Internet means an increasingly mobile workforce, which may present an opportunity or a threat. To manage these challenges, organisations appoint CIOs, who lead teams responsible for the strategy, design, procurement and operation of the ICT-enabled business. CIOs lead through strategic capability, technical knowledge, and excellent team-building.
