Course Description


Digital transformation integrates digital technology into all business areas, fundamentally changing how you operate and deliver value to customers. The evolution of technology will continue to disrupt every industry on the planet, some faster than others.

Digital transformation for leaders will take you through the key components that leaders need to consider when undertaking their own digital transformation. They include:

  • A strong leadership vision
  • Creating a digital culture of innovation and learning
  • Creating new value in your customer journey
  • Leveraging the right Innovative technology

This course presents you with opportunities to gain insight into transformational leadership, its importance, and what it means to you and your leadership role in your organization and industry.

Operational leaders will be exposed to and provided hands-on experience with several ideas and tools that will allow for a structured implementation of a transformational strategy that enables digital-enabled growth, creates environments for innovation, and determines organizational focus and budgeting in a digital environment. You will explore how to establish and embed an innovation matrix to encourage, manage and measure innovative ideas from across your organization.

Industry guest speakers will talk about their transformational journeys' experiences and share stories of overcoming organizations' impediments. You will examine strategic inflection points in a market or technology, creating new metrics for measuring innovation and understanding the importance of communicating a robust transformational leadership vision.

Through a variety of exercises and assessments, you’ll have an opportunity to develop an innovative transformation strategy for your organization with the guidance of experienced, innovative leaders.

Learn how to leverage your existing technology infrastructure to start your digital transformation, without the need to invest in new technology, without a strong vision for the value you want to create for your current or future clients and your organization.

In addition to the main program delivery, there will be ongoing support between the virtual sessions to provide guidance and direction as you step through the implementation of the tools and frameworks in your organization.
