Digital Strategy 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.

Discover the tools and behaviours required to successfully deploy teams on your digital change strategies – essential to thrive in the new digital ecosystem. You will focus on gaining the knowledge, tools and skills needed to lead digital transformation in your organisation.

Learn how to feel confident to lead and manage digital transformation in your organisation.

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.
