The basis of our course is our 360Geo Framework which we use with clients. It takes more than technology alone to 'Geo-Enable' your data and organisation or business - this understanding is core to our business. We want to share this insight with you.
This course includes a buffet lunch and tea & coffee throughout the day.
This is not a hands-on technical training course. This is a seminar-based day with follow-up calls to help you embed and use what you learn.
This Masterclass learning solution help close the gap between your current level of technical achievement and your next level of business excellence.
An ongoing challenge to technical experts is the ability to fully understand how technical solutions fit in the wider context of the business challenges of an organisation and how to communicate this business value. This is what we are experienced in.
We show you how to demonstrate the value add of using your solutions. It may be with Return on Investment (RoI), but typically communicating the value is not the straight forward – it’s about understating your organisational challenges, targets and your colleagues’ skills and mind-set.
We help you understand and communicate the value add that spatial analysis, Web GIS and critically the integration of these into business processes / integrated workflows gives your organisation.
Field Data Capture - we will look at High-Accuracy Data Collection for field-to-office data management & workflow - using the ZenoCollector, from Leica Geosystems, as a real-world example.
We will make you think: Purpose, People, Process, Information & Enabling Technologies. Technologies is always the last things we look at. Purpose is the ‘why’ do we (and your clients - this could be internal users and stakeholders) need these technologies in the first place – we need to establish this clearly and on multi-levels.
Using relevant demonstrations and examples to your stakeholders via an informal 'Show and tell' and understand their real needs – we make you think about quick demonstration sessions and to engage with colleagues and clients in their language and tackling their business challenges - with no jargon.
You will appreciate the it’s not technology alone that will make a difference, but only these:
Communication, Understanding, Storytelling, Sharing, Collaboration, Community Engagement and constant improvement - that keep you ahead of the game as a Geospatial Professional.
You will also understand the opportunities around 'BIM' and understating other non-geospatial ICT terms.
We provide discounted fees for individuals who are members of any industry body that is a members of the UKGEOForum. The UKGEOForum is a group of societies and associations that represent the core interests that encompass geography, mapping and the geospatial information handling industry.
We also provide discounts to members of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), as well as those who work in the Public Sector and Charity Sector.
Information Management, BIM and Web GIS services:
Lilia Wydra, GIS Manager – Argent (Property Development) Services LLP
“I strongly believe that access to GIS information should flow through the whole business and throughout the lifecycles of Developments, Projects and Assets. This however, if not appropriately managed, can lead to decreased efficiency of produced information. Even the most advanced Web GIS can become unproductive if data control processes are not in place.
It is very important to identify where this sharing can be free and where it should be tightly controlled. GeoEnable, helped us with reviewing our existing information systems and helped us align it with all business processes. This was absolutely critical. GeoEnable assisted us with the improvement of information governance and formal processes which in return significantly enhanced access to Argent’s GIS and other information resources.”
