<p>Darwin businesses are set to benefit from this service through various industry and community initiatives that have been established as part of the partnership. These include Fujitsu’s delivery of business seminars in Darwin on various technology and business processing topics.</p>
<p>The partnership will further educate and provide additional training to Northern Territory government agency staff on business processes. Fujitsu will be delivering industry awareness sessions to the wider Northern Territory industry in Business Process Re-engineering and Change Management concepts, assisting with wider community education on best business practices. Fujitsu will also be offering wider educational seminars on asset management.</p>
<p>Furthermore, Fujitsu will be delivering Enterprise Sustainability seminars to Northern Territory government executives, to provide them with an in-depth understanding of enterprise sustainability issues in their work environment and give them a starting point to drive environmental programs within their organisations.</p>
