Drive your digital transformation

Many companies are going digital. And that is great news, because studies show that companies with greater digital maturity have significantly higher growth. Yet, according to BCG, barely 30% of digital transformations fully achieve their objectives. One of the keys to success is teams’ ability to adapt, as they can easily feel left behind.

New technologies, real-time data analysis and artificial intelligence are transforming not only the business environment but also the expectations of customers, staff, shareholders and other stakeholders. They are essential to a company’s ability to remain competitive. So, whatever your industry, you need to understand how to leverage digital tools and data to sustainably transform your team and your business.

Our Management in the Digital Age microprogram will help you develop an understanding of emerging technologies and their impact on the business environment and leadership. You will learn how data can be an invaluable tool for accelerating decision-making. And you will discover the behaviours that foster agility and lasting commitment to change, two success factors in digital transformation.

Be ready to ...

  • Support your team and colleagues in adopting changes associated with digital transformation.

  • Facilitate the identification of key processes that can be optimized by technology.

  • Plan workforce needs and the development of essential skills and behaviours to support digital transformation.

  • Enhance your credibility as a transformational leader.

... and drive immediate value for your organization

  • Develop a solid digital strategy to support growth.
