Who is this for?
This course is for you if you want to make enterprise change happen at scale. We are looking for a first cohort of motivated individuals that want to aim beyond their immediate brief, scope or job. Attending an Intersection Academy course requires curiosity to apply unfamiliar perspectives, respect for adjacent disciplines with divergent viewpoints, and openness to combine today's disjunct elements to develop a holistic approach. Ideally, you'll come with a challenge in your current setting and are willing to learn – and unlearn – in a hands-on group setting.
You might call yourself a Product or Service Designer, Product Owner or Agile Coach, Business or Enterprise Architect, Business Analyst or Solution Architect – the common challenge we all share is to positively impact our organisations by:
- making sense of a complex environment with a range of various concerns
- influencing decisions to improve enterprise identity, experience and architecture
- enabling everyone in the enterprise to respond to challenges and co-design a better future state
