Digital Innovation and leading Transformation
To compete in today’s turbulent and demanding global business environment, organizations must continually revitalize and transform themselves. As a consequence, the demand for effective global leadership at all levels and stages of an organization is escalating. This program will provide participants with fundamental frameworks that help leaders in the continual task of aligning the key elements of a dynamic organization in the digital age – strategy, critical tasks, formal organization, people, and the pivotal role of organizational culture in driving performance.
The goals of this program are to help participants understand the dynamics of value creation and capture of digital innovation. Emphasis will be on the rigour of analysis and creation of realistic assessments in forecasting opportunities and threats posed by digital innovation and transformation.

After the program, participants will have a thorough understanding of:
- The economic and technological factors that are at the heart of the digital revolution taking place in the economy;
- The clash between existing business models and new digitally enhanced and led business models emphasizing platforms and ecosystems;
- The competitive interactions among firms with different digital business models;
- How to best organise and lead product and service innovation initiatives in the digital space.
