Detailed Programme

This Digital Leadership programme is designed for forward-thinking executives and digital transformation leaders. It provides a forum for business and technology leaders to nourish and grow the contribution they make to their business.

“All industries in all geographies are being radically reshaped by digital disruption – a ‘digital dragon’ that is potentially very powerful if tamed, but a destructive force if not. […] It’s a leadership challenge.” (Source: Gartner, 2014)

The term refers to customer EXperience, EXperimenting with value propositions, COllaboration and eCOsystems.

You’ll experience a blend of lectures, guest speakers, case studies, simulations, action learning and problem solving. And the peer networking creates a unique climate that complements the theory, frameworks and tools presented in this programme.
