Why attend Digital Strategies for Transforming Your Business?

In this period of digital disruption, businesses focused narrowly on value chains are at a disadvantage. Next-generation enterprises need to think more broadly about their business ecosystems, leverage digitization strategy to understand their customers better, and establish options for future success. Drawing on cutting-edge research, this course engages participants in a framework for seizing on all the above.

To thrive in a digitized universe, merely tweaking the management practices that led to past success will not be enough. Businesses of all sizes need to evaluate the strategic implications of digital disruption and create a future-proofed digital business model. Many enterprises will need to completely reinvent their organizations and substantially change their processes.

Despite this urgency, leaders often lack a common language to assess the degree of threat that digital disruption poses to their business and—more importantly—the language to create a compelling vision for their enterprise’s success.

Drawing on cutting-edge research conducted at MIT Sloan’s Center for Information Systems Research (CISR), this course provides a powerful framework for transforming businesses on two dimensions: knowing customers better and optimizing business design.

Course Experience

Through hands-on assessments, exercises, lectures, case studies of high-performing companies, and lively discussions, you will endeavor to answer key questions that will ultimately inform your organization’s digitization strategy including:

  1. Which digital business model is best for your enterprise’s future?
  2. What is your digital competitive advantage?
  3. How will you innovate to reinvigorate and renew your digital business model?
  4. Do you have the crucial capabilities to reinvent the enterprise?
  5. Do you have the metrics, governance, and leadership to make the transformation happen?
