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
