How IT pros can gear up for corporate leadership

IT leaders in Hong Kong are in better position than their Asian peers to drive growth and further advancement in their own careers, according to experts. But the path requires new skills and new learning strategies.

Yeung noted that challenges for most new IT leaders involve managing people and inter-departmental relationships. By sharing his previous experiences in dealing with similar situations and the philosophy of management, students can learn new perspectives and solutions.

Other mentors within the program include Patty Wong, former CIO at Hutchison Ports; Raymond Wong, the previous assistant director of Immigration Department and Tom Sheppard, former director of IT at Cable and Wireless/Hong Kong Telecom.

"This (program) is all about building skills through the knowledge transfer between those involved," said Hales. "The relationships formed extend beyond the formal end of the project."
