Digital transformation is first and foremost not about new technologies. It is about changing the way a company creates value, interacts with its customers and business partners, and competes in established and emerging markets. It is an organizational change process that reaches every corner of the company.
Digital transformation projects are characterized by high social complexity, structural rigidity, and procedural ambiguity. Initiating, executing, and governing the digital transformation of their companies is a major challenge for today’s leaders.
In this course, you’ll learn about the characteristics of digital transformation, how it evolved, and how the organizational and technological changes associated with digital transformation change the role, the skills, and the concept of leadership.

The course consists of 10 video lectures. The first five, for week 1, will be available on October 6. The remainder, for week 2, will be available on October 13. The course also offers self-test and weekly assignments, offering you the chance to monitor your progress and earn a record of achievement. During the course, you can exchange views or ask questions on the discussion forums. You can find out more information about all these aspects on the course elements page of the course once it starts.
