Leading Digital Transformation

Executive education program in English

Leading Digital Transformation provides participants with insights and impulses to understand, and respond to, the need to effectively lead businesses within increasingly digitalized markets. The program addresses digital culture, innovations, and leadership aspects and thus tries to provide a well-rounded overview of the complexity of the phenomenon digital transformation. The program also encourages participants to become drivers of change in their companies by developing new mindsets and behaviors within teams and departments. Through interactive and experiential learning, the program helps participants understand not only the “what” of digitalization but also the “how” of becoming an excellent leader for a digitalized future. The program covers the understanding, adaptation, and immediate application of newly gained knowledge in a state-of-the-art approach. Participants will be guided though a learning journey that is rich in new business perspectives and impactful leadership approaches.


Target audience: Who should attend the program?

Executives at middle- and senior-management levels who are currently in a digital transformation phase or who foresee digitalization as having a significant impact on their business models, organizations, and leader–follower relationships.


Key benefits: Profit from hands-on expertise

Participants will be confronted with challenging perspectives about what digitalization actually is and how it will affect their current business and leadership behaviors. After discovering that their former experiences and accumulated knowledge are not sufficient for maintaining leadership excellence, participants will be open to acquiring new methods and skills that will assist them in guiding their businesses in new directions.
