Charting the course towards a successful digital transformation

Digitalisation is the key to innovation, competitiveness, and growth. It also offers numerous opportunities for organisations to strengthen their market position. In fact, companies that embrace the digital transformation perform better and are more dynamic, have higher labour productivity, grow faster, have better management practices, and create higher-paying jobs.

Even though the benefits of digitalisation are clear, many companies struggle to make the transition. But with our Get Ahead in the Ongoing Digital Transformation course, you won’t have to navigate this transition blindly. We’ll give you the knowledge and tools you need to chart the right course towards a successful digital transformation.

What you will gain

Developed in partnership with EIT Digital, this course addresses the fundamental questions of why digital change is happening. More importantly, it helps you create a digitalisation roadmap that clearly outlines what you need to do to drive this change in your organisation.

The course uses a combination of face-to-face workshops, group activities, and interactive hands-on exercises to cover an array of topics, including:
