Comprehensive course analysis
Who should attend
Strategy in the Age of Digital Disruption is a meeting place for two groups. It is designed for:
- Executives who are in traditional leadership positions - of business units, products and functions - who need to better leverage digital in their current leadership activities.
- Executives who already have deep expertise and passion for digital and whose roles and projects are becoming increasingly strategic for their organisations.
Together you will learn how to drive a strategic approach to digital opportunities in your organisations.
Given the strategic orientation of the programme, participants should typically have at least 10 years of professional experience.
About the course
Develop effective strategies in a digital age In the last decade, digital has become part of almost every debate and discussion around strategy and often, the central focus. The reason is simple.
Powerful and interconnected technologies today including the cloud and AI, mean any business going through a digital transformation journey will be handed lucrative opportunities, but will also have to face dramatic threats.
The possibilities for new products, services and business models promise to substantially impact almost every sector of the economy even those where digital has already brought important changes.
And yet, although the long-term impacts of digital promise to be deep and far reaching, the path to this future for industries, companies and consumers is proving far from linear or predictable. Often claims of impending disruptions do not materialise, at least in the time frame or manner predicted. A carefully considered, strategic response is invaluable in approaching digital transformation so that your business remains sustainable and agile in this ever-changing environment.
Strategy in the Age of Digital Disruption provides the strategic tools, concepts and perspectives that will allow you to develop a strategic response to the new digital possibilities and to then align your organisation for effective strategy execution. It will support you in becoming more proactive in the digital domain, help you turn digital threats into opportunities, and allow you to leverage digital to create competitive advantage and enhanced performance.
