About the course
Rethink and reinvigorate your value chain using the right set of digital technologies and techniques to create more value for your business.
Yesterday’s supply chains look nothing like today’s. Value chains are undergoing constant technological transformation. There are more ways to connect with customers and suppliers, endless ways to personalize, and a sea of data to manage. In other words, more complexity, challenges, and opportunities. Powering Digital Value Chains: Big Data to Business Intelligence will help you learn how to operate and compete in this exciting data-driven world.
This Stanford Intensive Live Online Business Program will help you understand how to make the most of your value chain by leveraging digital technologies to create greater value. Discover the latest technologies and innovative trends in e-commerce, digital marketplaces, and experimentation. Explore analytical tools like AI and machine learning that can turn big data into better decisions. Identify and exploit opportunities where more value can be captured — for an existing value chain or to spark a new venture.
In eight faculty-led sessions held over four days, you’ll engage deeply with world-renowned researchers who have real-world expertise in applying intelligent business analytics and digital technologies. Together, with faculty and peers, you’ll share new strategies, technologies, and applications. While technical in nature, no technical expertise is required.

As strategists and practitioners, you’ll need to learn how to leverage it, to turn that data into intelligence that can make your value chain more successful. That’s the crux of the Powering Digital Value Chain curriculum. It’s intense. Fast paced. And highly relevant to anyone who has a stake in operating and improving the value chain of the future.
