About the course

The pace, depth and breadth at which digital transformation is taking place throughout the entire value chain has affected every organisation in deeply disruptive ways. We understand that digitalisation is a subject that currently occupies a significant mindshare of senior leaders across sectors and geographies.

Set the Pace in Building a Digitally Focused Organisation poised for Success in an Evolving Digital Economy

Digitalisation, technological advancements, changing competitive environments consumer behaviours and habits, have all had a disruptive impact across industries and organisations. Across the globe, senior executives are grappling with this digital tsunami and its many implications for their own organisation structures, business strategies, culture and talent. Leaders today strive to transform and be ahead of the digital curve as they chart the future, purpose and strategy, and transform ways of working.

What kind of leaders do you need to drive change, growth and competitive edge into the future for your organisation in this digital age? According to the research* we conducted, we found an almost universal agreement “that digitalisation was the new normal and it was here to stay - organisations across the board, regardless of their size and/or nature of business, needed to embrace it fully and fast, in order to survive, stay relevant and competitive, and provide greater value to their clients and stakeholders, in the future.”

Join us on this virtual leadership development journey that is specially curated with impactful content designed to help senior executives lead their organisations towards being future-ready for our digital world. The capsule edition of Advanced Leadership in an Age of Digital Disruption is a 3-day virtual programme, delivered completely online through live sessions with our highly-rated faculty and industry experts, and fully supported by SMU’s online learning platform.
