Discover the tools and behaviours required to successfully deploy teams on your digital change strategies – essential to thrive in the new digital ecosystem. Feel confident to lead and manage digital transformation in your organisation.
Digital Leadership and Change is a module of RSM’s Diploma Programme in Digital Transformation (DPDT), but can also be followed separately. The programme will support you in creating winning business performance through digital transformation initiatives.
Learn how to take advantage of emerging disruptive technologies that are threatening to disrupt your industry, such as the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and block chain. You will focus on how to effectively compete in tomorrow’s digital landscape by anticipating digital trends and competitors’ responses.
Become a better strategic advisor who can influence, drive, and implement effective digital strategies.
You will learn how to embed data management practices in your organisation, how to develop a data-driven strategy, and how to combine direct insights from your customers with the use of big data. The workshop provides you with the tools needed to manage data through analytics and design thinking principles, and teaches you management strategies to leverage value-adding opportunities.
You will learn techniques that you can use immediately to identify data opportunities in your department or organisation.
Is your company struggling to embrace digital innovation? You will learn what changes you need to make to your business model, how to respond strategically to digitization and disruption, and discover how to introduce a future-proof and innovation-driven culture.
You will design your digital business model using the canvas, paying particular attention to your value propositions.
Executives and managers from any industry wanting a better understanding of strategic responses and operational implications for leading teams in digital transformation projects; developing and implementing them, using them to achieve departmental impact, or wanting to find practicable opportunities; and also for entrepreneurs interested in capitalising on opportunities.
This DPDT programme offered the tools and aspects of digital transformation, which gave me a solid foundation to help my company make that step towards digital transformation.
