Course description

Quantum Technologies for Decision Makers

Quantum technology is all around yet many of us can readily be confused by the science, let alone the trajectories to identifying commercial opportunities. Dominant in the hype is the emerging promise of quantum computing, still some way from delivering a useful and fully capable quantum computer. In such a context, making strategic decisions when the science and engineering are shifting presents many innovation dilemmas!

This course applies a focus on quantum technologies that deliver innovative new products and services. The now ubiquitous mobile telephone demonstrates such innovation. Our interest lies in exploring enough of the science to boost our understanding so that we can make informed decisions to allocate resources that create and harness emerging opportunities. Such resource-allocation processes will be as many and varied as there are innovators to pursue them.

The full 4-module course specifically targets strategic decision makers across the quantum domains of sensing, communication, and computing. The online course includes content from world-recognised quantum scientists as well as the approaches of practitioners seeking to harness the exciting technological potentials for their organizations and customers. The key artefact learners will develop is a quantum strategy for their own organization, identifying the enablers and challenges to unique opportunities. This quantum strategy can then serve as a roadmap for an innovation portfolio.
