The program consists of 2 submodules and a group assignment. In each submodule, models and concepts are explained and illustrated through cases and exercises. All in-class sessions will be highly interactive, with a lot of focus on sharing experiences and challenging ideas.

Submodule 1: Leading Digital Transformation

  • Business and IT strategy & alignment
    The academic foundations of value creation from information technology are laid out and complemented with tools, models and exercises in order to define the value of digital assets in your organization and to measure the alignment between your current digital and business strategy.
  • Governance and management of enterprise IT
    Building on the above, we continue with an articulated understanding of the value of tech­nology within your organization. We will analyze the structures, processes and relational mechanisms (IT Governance) that influence the alignment, i.e. value creation, of your business and IT strategy. The COBIT® 2019 framework is used to help us with the prioritization process. Inspiring exercises and case studies by industry experts are illustrating the key learnings.
  • Strategy roadmaps for managing digital transformation – IT governance business game
    All the learnings are brought together in a balanced scorecard in order to formulate a strategy road map which will enable your organization to move from the ‘as is’ situation to the desired ‘to be’ situation. A highly interactive business game and the creation of your own business case will guarantee the clear link from theory to practice.

Submodule 2: Mastering Digital Disruption

  • Exploration of contemporary emerging and potential disruptive technologies, i.e. explore how they can impact business and income models;
  • Hands-on support to start using these technologies by following the principles of Understand – Shape – Embed (U-S-E);

    • Shape: teaching and coaching on how you can turn your technological ideas into real business cases and lead disruption in your company by building narratives in order to convince stakeholders;
