eLeadershipin eSkills & Work
e-Leadership skills enable people with very strong ICT skills to lead qualified staff from ICT and other disciplines towards identifying and designing business models and exploiting key innovation opportunities. e-Leadership is successful where an organisation makes best use of new developments in ICT, where leading edge ICT drives innovation and delivers value to their organisations. We analyse the creation and the demand for e-leadership skills. Together with industry and leading European universities and business schools we develop guidelines and curriculum profiles to adapt existing courses or develop new ones. The guidelines are continuously updated and offered to the market by empirica. A number of universities and business schools from all over Europe has used curriculum profiles to carry out a self-assessment and mapping of courses and programmes, helping them to adapt to technology trends, learner demand and industry requirements and become fully fledged e-leadership courses. We offer online tools to support the entire process of course mapping to curriculum profiles and the execution of a self assessment on which to base course and programme developments and adaptations. Universities use these tools as guidance for developing new e-leadership courses. The approach has also been adapted to best suit the needs of SMEs and entrepreneurs and several renowned universities and business schools are using it to conduct, further develop and adapt their offers to better address this market.
