Information Technology provides the potential for nations to thrive in the global economy.
What differentiates them is the capability to apply technology seamlessly to business processes. This requires IT professionals who can combine business understanding with an ability to apply IT know how. Some refer to this capability as dual thinking. European competitive edge is largely dependent upon IT professionals with these rare but essential complementary skills.
Terry Hook supports this drive for continuous skills development of European IT professionals through participation in European Union IT skills initiatives.
Terry is proud to have participated, with European colleagues, in the development of the European e-competence framework (e-CF) ; from concept through to development of version 2, he has been engaged as a CEN (the European Committee for Standardisation) workshop expert. Equally he is honoured to work with many organisations including the European Commission, DG Enterprise and Industry, Dekra the leading German Vocational Education Provider, Euproma Gmbh a respected European Consultancy, Politecnico di Turino and numerous eminent colleagues across the European Union.
