Microsoft understands that developing a transformation strategy extends far beyond business and technology to leadership and organisational capabilities. Microsoft certifications encompass both the technical and strategic side of transformation, empowering people with practical insights for their unique journey. We are thrilled to support the future-readiness of Hong Kong's brightest talent through this partnership.'
