What is this programme about?


Too often organizations rush towards digital transformation initiatives – to remain competitive in today’s world. However, too often – they fall behind! This is because key change management requirements are side-stepped/ ignored. These requirements need to be done right and are crucial for success.

Critical elements within the People, Process and Culture agenda of organizations need to be addressed so the right behaviour change can be achieved. Alignment across functions towards the overall digital strategic goals needs to be created. The journey needs to be cross-functional to make sure there is a buy-in across the organization and that nobody is left behind!

This highly interactive primer will use real life cases, short exercises and subject matter videos, completed with Q&A sessions to give you a sneak-preview of the road-map that will ensure you succeed in your digital transformation journey!
