NEW - Digital Execution
Bringing digital strategy to life

Digital business execution: get it right!

To succeed with digital transformation, you need to experiment effectively, implement fast, and keep adapting your iterations in an agile way.

Yet most organizations still operate with a traditional strategy development and implementation mindset. 

Digital Execution (DE), part of IMD's Digital Business Acceleration Series, introduces you to the latest tools and techniques used by agile companies both in start-up and in more traditional settings.

You leave the program with a detailed roadmap of initiatives to implement, methodologies to use and technologies to apply, ready to bring your company's digital strategy to life!

Fast execution is a company’s ability to carry out its plans quickly and effectively. Unfortunately, it is a rare capability, especially in large companies where execution is slowed by cultural inertia, second-guessing, turf wars, and a reluctance to invest in resources needed to get the job done.

The digital world is one of testing, learning and improving. Digital companies which succeed don’t know which idea will be successful in advance, so they develop a portfolio of ideas and build on the most successful ones.

Making the right decisions on where to build up a competitive advantage is not trivial. Strategic decisions involve a degree of uncertainty regarding future developments where technologies and business models change rapidly.
