About the course

Decision making within boardrooms has substantial impact on daily operations and management. Leaders within organizations can benefit from understanding boardroom dynamics and knowing what challenges boardroom members face in order to be a valuable and impactful business partner.

This module provides you with the knowledge and skills to maximize your influence on boardroom decisions. Companies are increasingly data driven and need to transfer their employees and structures to more agile ways of working. They can no longer afford to work in the silos of departments. The speed of change is the new currency in a digitalizing world. Technology developments, such as machine learning, 3D printing and robotization, have substantial impact on the way markets and enterprises are organized, giving birth to new ecosystems and platforms.

Your organization and the board will benefit from your new knowledge and insights about your specific organization and management issues. Being a stronger conversation partner helps the people around you to stay sharp and take effective decisions.

Learning Goals

  • Understand the impact of new technological changes on society, industries and your organization.
  • Understand the boardroom dynamics regarding digital transformation processes.
  • Apply tools to take the lead in digital transformation processes by working on your individual case and working in different teams to share your knowledge, experience and bring your individual cases to the next level.

What are you going to do?

This module deals with digital transformation from a boardroom perspective. It is a deep dive into how executive boards take decisions in response to the aforementioned challenges; how boardroom dynamics work to initiate and to support innovation and digitalization throughout the company; how a vision is translated into strategy; and how a board can be convinced to take on new projects without proven revenue track record, while providing enough room to operate with new ideas that sometimes may change existing business models and demand transformational leadership across the organization. It provides you with the latest literature regarding innovation and digital transformation and leadership while enabling you to translate your academic insights into skills needed to: understand boardroom dynamics; convince a board of new innovative ideas and to take the lead in digital transformation projects.

During the module there is a strong focus on exchange between theory and practice. It involves a fair amount of case work in teams as we believe that the most precious learnings also come from your peers and their experience building on the knowledge and experience-sharing of the teachers. Hence, an important aspect of the course is interaction, realized via classroom dialogue, discussion, and peer exchange.
