Build the right digital transformation journey for your company

You explore the dynamics of digital disruption and transformation, always with an aim to improving organizational performance. You will explore the implications of digital tools, technologies, and business models for marketing, sales, strategy, operations, and leadership from planning to execution.

Inspirational guest speakers and compelling case studies from both traditional and disruptive organizations stimulate your thinking around the threats and opportunities that lie ahead.

Your roadmap to a digitally-enabled competitive edge

Your core focus throughout the week and main deliverable when you leave is the development of a strategic roadmap for digital transformation of your organization.

You'll explore how to:

  • Decode disruptors
  • Drive digital agility
  • Build powerful digital platforms
  • Thrive amid disruption

Don't focus on the disruptor, focus on the disruption

How can you respond to disruption?  Disruptors come and go, but disruption is where value is created and sustained. You are introduced to 3 digital value drivers and 4 strategic response options to beat disruptors at their own game.

  • Learn from the disruptor and improve your core business
  • Recenter your activities around a niche/exclusive market
  • Overcome your disruptor on the battlefield
  • Become a disruptor by finding ways to create customer value in new ways
