IT Management

IT program and project managers are expected to do much more than just monitor compliance with processes. Highly qualified IT managers master effective change management, comprehensive reporting, people management, extensive strategic understanding and high resilience. In an environment as dynamic as digital transformation, few managers can achieve measurable success. At Akana, we are committed to promoting and challenging the greatest talents in order to make companies fit for the challenges of digitalization.
