Programme overview

Digital technologies are profoundly transforming people, societies and the business landscape. This highly interactive programme provides company executives and entrepreneurs with the conceptual knowledge and practical tools required for the on-going digital transformations of their organisations. Learn about the business impact of digital change and formulate a digital roadmap for the future of your organisation.

Join other industry leaders to learn how digital technologies are changing the business context including products, services, value chains and industry structures; the new rules of competition and new strategic imperatives; business models and organisation to become digital; challenges in managing digital and legacy business models; the transition to digital; and the role of regulation.

Who is the programme for?

The programme is designed for non-technical executives, leaders and entrepreneurs who need to better understand changes in the digital landscape, the impact on business models and the disruptions to industries.

Focus and structure

The programme is divided into two parts. The first covers a review of the wider psychological and socio-economic implications, including the co-evolution of technology, business and society in order to develop emergent scenarios on the impact of digital transformation. The second part focuses on the business implications of digital transformations, including basic analytical tools, value chain digital transformations, digital ecologies, product service digital convergence, digital disruptions of products and services, organising for digital innovation and new business models. Through a blend of face-to-face teaching, interaction over a digital environment, case studies and experiential learning delivered by experts in the field, you will create your own digital roadmap. Delegates will collaborate with digital tutors and share positive and negative experiences with peers to learn from a range of best practices.
