Who should attend

This course is relevant for leaders in both private and public organisations and across industries, as well as anyone with leadership responsibilities.

About the course

As digital technologies advance, the pace, scope, and complexity of change experienced in organisations has reached unprecedented levels. Developing the capabilities for leading in the digital age is essential for the success of both companies and leaders.

Leading in digitized workplaces requires having both a “digital mindset” regarding technological changes and transformation, and an understanding of how to adapt and move the organisation forward in volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environments.

As the success of change largely relies on employees’ willingness and ability to adapt, an important component of leadership in this context is also relaying and supporting change within their teams.

By attending this course, leaders will develop the knowledge and skills to lead more effectively in an age where digitization and constant change are the new reality. Further, they will develop the insight needed to monitor their own leader behavior and team responses to this behavior, such that they are better able to manage themselves and others regardless of where this new reality takes them.

By combining campus sessions and online learning processes, including both individual and group-based exercises, this course aims to offer a more effective and practical approach to teaching.

TOPICS COVERED IN THIS COURSE INCLUDE:

  • The workplace of the future: Major trends and challenges related to leading in digitized workplaces and digital transformation initiatives
  • Implementing agile, digital teamwork
  • How proactive innovations in job design can be leveraged to facilitate change processes
  • Digital mindsets: how to both develop and leverage the mindsets needed in the organization
  • Enabling innovation and digital transformation: How leaders create the adaptive space needed for the learning and innovation necessary for digital transformation to flourish
  • Leveraging digital platforms to lead organisational transformation

Programme structure

This course is 15 credits and is conducted through a combination of campus and online learning process. The campus module will consist of 2 sessions x 2 days. The online module will combine different web-based techniques, both individually and in groups. The combination of campus and online learning process equals 75 lecturing hours over one semester.
