Apply for the ITCC 2021 Steering Committee
For the fourth time, the IT Case Competition will be held at the IT University in October 2017. To helm the preparations, the ITCC Board is looking for two or three resourceful, creative and energetic people willing to take on the responsibility of negotiating, planning and executing next year’s ITCC.
As a Steering Committee member, you will be in charge of the coordinating efforts leading up to the ITCC 2017. You will lead the hunt for partners and close the deal with the case company, prepare and present strategies for the marketing and conceptualize all associated events leading up to the competition. You are also responsible for maintaining the budget and head up applications for funds from different foundations. Most importantly, you’re responsible for good time management and ensuring the correct and timely execution of every phase towards the main event, including the application process and event logistics.
IT Case Competition is a yearly competitive case-solving event, focusing on IT challenges in contemporary business. The event aims to merge business acumen with technical creativity and combine skills from across Danish and other Scandinavian IT-related degrees, in order to present a justifiable solution to the case. The winning team takes home a cash prize of 20.000DKK.
To succeed as the Steering Committee of ITCC 2017, you and your fellow member(s) will have to show leadership, negotiation- and planning skills, as well as great problem-solving abilities. For all the executive decisions involved in ITCC 2017, the bucket stops with you. The format of the event has to mimic previous years, but there are several areas in which the Steering Committee has the ability to influence what sets this year apart. However, the following skills are desired within the Committee:
- Project management skills
- Negotiation skills (with relation to prospective partners)
- Firm understanding of marketing and social media
- High level of writing skills in both Danish and English
Apart from this, we are interested in candidates who display some or all of the following qualities:
- Ability to mobilize support and interest across Denmark and Scandinavia
- Creativity in solutions and being able to “work with what we’ve got”
- Drive and enthusiasm for the cause
- Leadership and a positive influence on the team
By taking on the role as Steering Committee member, you sign up for real leadership training and the opportunity to hone both professional and personal qualities. In terms of career prospects, you’ll be in close contact with the partnering businesses, and both negotiate and collaborate with their representatives. If you succeed and have an interest in supporting the future of IT Case Competition, there is the possibility of a position on the ITCC Board once you finish as a Steering Committee member.
Application Deadline: April 16th
