Leading in a Digital World

In the modern business world, organisations need to embrace disruptive technology or else risk being disrupted themselves. And, to do so successfully, the organisation needs leaders that will capitalise on new technologies and trends and guide the organisation smoothly through periods of rapid technological change. 

In this course, we discuss the key skills and capabilities that are essential for organisations, employees and their leaders to survive in a digital world, as well as different paths an organisation can take to meet changing customer demands, improve efficiency and develop its competitive edge. 

As a finance professional, you may be called upon to provide insights and advice to support the organisation’s leadership. Or, perhaps you, yourself, have a seat at the leadership table (or intend to in the future!). In either case, understanding the role of an organisation’s leadership in digital strategy, as well as the options available to the organisation, will prepare you for your role.
