Webinar: Business: Disrupted. How to handle digital disruption for the SMEs

Category: Webinar

While digital transformation is sweeping the markets, SMEs are sandwiched between million dollar companies and nimble start-ups. More and more SMEs are realizing that being digital is no longer about innovation, but survival - it is now critical to understand the new, disruptive technologies.

To survive, SMEs need leaders and executives that stay ahead of the disruption curve. They need to be equipped with critical skills and knowledge to keep a finger on the pulse for emergent technologies.

In this webinar, we share a couple of models on understanding how disruptive technologies work, and decision making mechanisms on how to deal with them. We also share a few examples of victories as well as defeats due to digital disruption. The ultimate motivation; show SMEs that they do not have to be crushed under the wave of digital transformation, but be the ones riding it.
