Do you have what it takes to lead in a digital age? Do you feel equipped with the necessary leadership skills to thrive in this new frontier?

Leading in the Digital Age (LDA), part of IMD’s Digital Business Series, provides you with tools to develop the skills and capabilities you’ll need to be an effective leader in an era of perpetual change and disruption.

The program offers a practical learning approach, backed up by theory and research. You’ll receive personalized feedback on your digital leadership capabilities and work with both IMD faculty and specially-trained coaches to understand how to capitalize on your strengths and improve your weaknesses.

To give you a well-rounded understanding of leading in a digital age, we strongly recommend that you pair your experience with Mastering Digital Technologies or Digital Strategy.

  • Day 2 – Engage in personalized work with coaches, learning from the real-life experiences of digital leaders and through experiential exercises.
  • Day 3 – Complete your leadership development plan to drive positive change once you return to your organization.
