ABOUT THIS COURSE
The senior leaders winning in the digital economy are not necessarily technically brilliant, they understand the opportunity that digital brings and create a culture of fearless innovation. They cultivate the ‘digital mindset’ within their organisation, use data to automate decisions and identify new opportunities that leverage emerging technological game changers. They have digitally transformed. This course gives leaders the mindset, methods and tools to do the same.
This is a leadership course, not a technology course.
