Focus and structure
The Leading Digital Transformations programme is divided into two parts. The first covers a review of the wider psychological and socio-economic implications, including the co-evolution of technology, business and society in order to develop emergent scenarios on the impact of digital transformation. The second part focuses on the business implications of digital transformation, including basic analytical tools, value chain digital transformation, digital ecologies, product service digital convergence, digital disruptions of products and services, organising for digital innovation and new business models. Through a blend of virtual teaching, interaction over a digital environment, case studies and experiential learning delivered by a leading Cass Professor in the field, you will create your own digital roadmap. Delegates will collaborate with digital tutors and share positive and negative experiences with peers to learn from a range of best practices.
