About the course

Structuring your business through radical change.

The game is changing and it's changing fast. All industries are prone to disruption, but if your organisation is in the media, telecommunications, financial services, retail, technology, transportation, hospitality or consulting industry, it's at an increased risk of experiencing competition from non-traditional sources.
