Online course overview
You start the program by exploring the current state of digital disruption and how different industries are being impacted. The program uses the image of a vortex, which like a whirlpool, draws everything that surrounds it into its center. You see how your industry is also moving toward this “digital center” in which business models, offerings and value chains must be digitized to the maximum extent possible. You learn to identify competitive differentiators in this digital world and how to develop strategies (both offensive and defensive) that can bring advantage to your business. You identify your value drivers and learn how to combine multiple sources of value. You become more digitally agile.
Individual assignments, virtual group work, case studies, readings, video summaries, personalized feedback from your program coach, peer reviews with other participants from across the globe, and personal reflection moments – are all combined to stimulate your thinking, unlock new insights, change habits, and firmly embed the learning.
By the end of the program you will have practical tools and frameworks to help make the transformation happen in your organization.
