Comprehensive course analysis
Who should attend
This program is ideal for both small groups or individuals seeking to instigate change. Whether you bring multiple people from the same department, or engage those across the organization, together you’ll learn the tools to build a strong digital culture across the entire organization, efficiently integrate technology and processes, and design better end-to-end customer experiences.
About the course
We're living in a time of continuous change. To thrive in this environment, organizations need to use new technology and methods to continually innovate, to rethink and redesign processes, and to deliver better customer experiences. Digital Transformation provides the opportunity for core business functions to fundamentally change the way work is done so that the organization can grow and remain competitive over time.
It is not a question of "if" your company should take on a digital transformation, but "how." This program provides a comprehensive framework for implementing digital transformation throughout your company. It brings together proven tools and techniques that can be applied across business units — from HR and Finance to Marketing and Product/Service Development to Manufacturing and Sales — to make your company’s transformation complete, sustainable, and effective.
