Execution is what matters in order to bring your strategy to life

The success or failure of your digital transformation initiative is directly related to the quality of its execution. Digital Execution (DE), part of IMD’s Digital Business Series, provides you with a concrete roadmap through the many execution challenges that accompany your digital transformation.

The program not only covers the successful integration of digital tools and technologies, it also explores the complementary changes that need to occur with business transformation, such as organizational structure, products, channels, customer and employee engagement, incentives, and most importantly, company culture.

You will leave with a detailed roadmap of initiatives to implement, methodologies to use and technologies to apply, so that you are 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.
