Organizations, schools, and government departments of today and tomorrow require an effective digital learning strategy to keep speed with innovation and upskill their workforces. Regardless of your industry, your employees expect smart, connected experiences that fit the way they live and work in a digital world. In this new, hands-on program, we’ll give you the capability and confidence to harness current technologies such as machine learning, augmented reality, and robotics in your education strategy. You’ll also look at digital learning and transformation technologies through a strategic lens that will help you create and deliver new value.

Today’s organizations are transforming their workforces to drive productivity, innovation, and growth; upskilling plays a key role in both individual and enterprise success. Effective learning programs strive to match the speed at which the digital economy is changing with organizational adaptability and readiness. This means taking advantage of the same technologies that are delivering disruption—including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), and robotics—and harnessing them to build cutting-edge learning approaches that will lead you and your teams to a profitable and sustainable future.

Digital Learning Strategy is designed to help you build a blueprint for your enterprise that is flexible, personalized, and scalable, and that leverages transformative technologies. Through hands-on makerspace activities and under the guidance of industry experts, you will explore AI/ML, AR/VR, and robotics technologies firsthand, giving you the knowledge to begin using them immediately in your digital learning strategy.

Faculty will combine the principles that underpin these technologies with recent insights in areas including neuroscience of learning, game theory, and data science. You’ll learn how to identify key strategic considerations such as when to enlist a vendor, speed to market, product lifecycle, pricing strategies, and how to mitigate the risks of advanced technologies effectively.

You’ll also learn how to construct a “learning double helix” where digital and physical learning strategies are mutually supportive and create value that is more than the sum of its parts.

You’ll leave this program as a “presentist,” not futurist, equipped to build, implement, and articulate a digital learning strategy that is futureproofed from technological disruption and provides immediate competitive advantage.

Technical skills are not required for this program. Simply bring your curiosity and a willingness to roll up your sleeves. This program will provide a pragmatic and actionable set of insights you can apply on day one.

 

In this action-learning based program, we’ll help you build the capability and confidence to:

  • Effectively communicate the value of digital learning strategy to your stakeholders
  • Build and implement a 4-step model to create your digital learning strategy
  • Learn where, when, and how to use transformative technology in your learning strategy
  • Drive learning innovation through hacking, experimenting, and prototyping
  • Apply the lessons learned from a MIT Sloan digital case study to your enterprise
  • Manage your digital learning business and end-to-end lifecycle effectively
  • Lead your digital learning into the future by asking the right strategic questions
  • Define and implement a team-of-teams approach to digital learning strategy
  • Create a “double helix” where digital and physical learning strategies combine and complement
  • Move your team and organization towards a digital learning culture
  • Exit this program as a digital learning presentist ready to act and do, today
  • Develop a single learning digital language to share across your enterprise

Digital transformation has revolutionized the way that humans behave and make decisions. This has greatly impacted competitive strategy – loyalty can be created and destroyed by customer experience. What do these shifts mean for customer experience (CX) strategy? This new customer experience course uniquely applies a behavioral science foundation to help you develop breakthrough digital customer experience CX for your brand that resonates in this highly digitized world.


Whether you are part of a new company leveraging the latest technologies, or a legacy organization feeling the pressures of digital transformation, you need a customer experience strategy that is the best of two worlds—data-driven but also keenly aware of the human element.


In this highly interactive two-day program, Renée Richardson Gosline, MIT Sloan Senior Lecturer, demonstrates how state-of-the-art behavioral economics can be combined with leadership strategy to develop innovative marketing strategy and competitive advantage.


You’ll learn how to create different types of value for customers, leverage artificial intelligence for an enhanced experience, and embrace field experiments for actionable data-based insights. You’ll leave this customer experience course with a varied set of tools to help you enhance the digital customer experience your company provides and transform your organization to optimize an experimental culture. Gosline will also draw on the research behind her forthcoming book, The Human Algorithm: How humans augment AI, and vice versa, to improve decision-making.
Course content and discussions will explore:

  • Using data and technology as a tool to craft superior customer experience (CX)
  • Applied Behavioral “Nudges” for better/different choices and decisions
  • Creating a Culture that embraces Experimentation
  • How to design and incorporate experiments into your data strategy for Innovation
  • Customer-Brand Relationships (CBR) and how to diagnose and build them
  • Digital collaborations between firms and customers in platforms
  • Judgment and decision-making in AI/algorithm-mediated landscapes
  • Digital Brand Strategy
  • Leadership: How to create a culture that embraces tech change and experimentation—and how to get leaders to buy in.

Participants in this organizational strategy program will learn what it takes to build game-changing companies that make their teams and areas of responsibility world-class talent factories. They will also discuss the importance of building an innovative company culture and learn from the successes and challenges of various companies that have been on similar journeys of transformation.

Game-changing organizations rewrite traditional playbooks. They stand out. They often create disproportionate value relative to their size and resources. They have big dreams but know how to get things done. These organizations have a palpable "buzz" to them. They have a breakaway business model, but they also have a breakaway spirit and organizational culture.

Leaders of these game-changing organizations understand the power and importance of telling their companies' compelling stories. They are hard-edged business leaders but they also embrace what others might consider to be the "soft side" of leading: purpose, vision, and climate. They know how to integrate the hard and soft sides of leadership into a powerful formula that makes them game-changers. These leaders and their organizations are purpose-driven, performance-oriented, and principles-led. The weaving together of these three capabilities simultaneously is what helps them get and stay out in front.
