How it works


Respond to the urgent necessity of being able to lead the business in digitized markets.

Leading Digital Transformation (LDT) provides executives with methods and measures that help them respond to the urgent necessity of being able to lead their businesses within increasingly digitalized markets. LDT thereby places a special focus on leadership skills that are crucial for leading people in a digital environment. The program also encourages participants to become drivers of change in their companies by developing new mindsets and behaviors within teams and departments. Through experiential learning and by tapping into new didactical approaches (e.g., gamification and prototyping), LDT helps participants understand not only the “What” of digitalization but also the “How” of becoming an excellent leader for a truly digitalized future. LDT covers the understanding, adaption, and immediate application of newly gained knowledge in a state-of-the-art approach. Participants will be guided through a learning journey that is rich in new business perspectives and impactful leadership approaches.

Key benefits

Participants will be confronted with challenging perspectives about what digitalization actually is and how it will affect their current business and leadership behaviors. After discovering that their former experiences and accumulated knowledge are not sufficient for maintaining leadership excellence, participants will be open to acquiring new methods and skills that will assist them in guiding their businesses in new directions.
