The Diploma in Digital Innovation and Transformation represents a transformational and experiential learning journey that includes the exploration of proven strategies and real-world applications, while its broad practice perspective provides participants with the know-how to shape and drive a digital agenda.  By participating in the programme, participants will gain a thorough understanding of how organizations can deploy digital technologies, both strategically and operationally, for business impact. The programme will explore the impact that technology is having on industries and competition, as well as the opportunities that it offers organizations. By analyzing cases from across diverse industries and organizations, participants will discover a core of practice that serves as a basis for the development of a general framework for digital innovation and business transformation, with strong practical relevance. In particular, the programme will help participants understand what is required to establish the necessary environment for success with digital, address the key questions of where and when to invest, and consider how they can design and manage the necessary transformation to realize expected outcomes. In-class presentations and discussions, workshops, readings and peer dialogues will equip participants with the knowledge, tools and frameworks to make informed decisions and forge innovation strategies to increase revenue, productivity, and customer engagement. Lessons and prescriptions from research and consulting assignments will be presented and critiqued. Ultimately, the programme aims to provide a learning environment that encourages participants to actively draw on their own experiences and the collective experiences of their fellow participants, so they can develop and advance their own personal capability.
