As an organization looks to leverage the opportunities of digital technologies and become a so called digital enterprise, victory is determined not so much by successfully deploying technology as it is about making fundamental changes to an organization. This will include reimagining processes, introducing new ways of working, becoming data driven in decision making, focusing on employee experience, re-aligning accountabilities, altering funding models and introducing more relevant metrics. It may also demand dealing with the technical debt that has accumulated due to legacy systems. Perhaps the most difficult of all changes to make will be changing mindsets and corporate culture.

The aim of this program is to help you plan, set-up and run your digital transformation initiative in ways that increase the likelihood of expected business outcomes being achieved.
