Why attend Becoming a More Digitally Savvy Board Member?:

Digital transformation involves rethinking how technology can be used to improve business models, value proposition, customer experience, operational efficiency, and more. This means innovating to deliver enhanced products, services, and customer engagement, but it also means having a board of directors that is digitally conversant.

Findings from recent MIT research show that board members who understand the impact of emerging technologies on business success are helping companies outperform competitors. Digitally savvy boards help their companies move forward at a sufficient pace, advocating for change by supporting and sometimes nudging their CEOs.

On the other hand, when a board lacks digital savviness, it can’t get a handle on important elements of strategy and oversight— from cybersecurity breaches and privacy issues to business model disruptions and missed competitive opportunities—and thus can’t play its critical role of helping guide the company to a successful future.

This new course combines a two-day live online program with self-paced online learning components to help individuals and small teams—leaders and board members of large enterprises—increase their digital savviness and have more productive discussions around the opportunities and threats of the digital economy.
