Assessing the Impact of the Evolving  Digital Technologies on Your Business


The emergence of digital technologies, and the disruptions they create, are reshaping companies and entire industries. In this dynamic environment, firms need to evolve not only to keep up with today's digital landscape, but also because those that are on top of trends and transformations today may face game-changing threats tomorrow. That’s why understanding current innovations and the successful harnessing of digital technologies is just the beginning. Staying steps ahead, and maintaining that position over the long term, takes new capabilities and perspectives to evaluate digital technologies strategically, to shape and leverage the organization, and to lead in the face of significant uncertainty and complexity.

Experience and Impact

Technology can transform your business — or leave you far behind your competitors. In this highly actionable program, you will develop tools and capabilities for leading a continuous, agile, and strategic endeavor to harness and stay ahead of digital disruptions.

Because today’s technologies will quickly become obsolete and digital disruption looks different to every organization, this program does not focus on “how-tos” or one-size-fits-all approaches. Instead, USILD experts will help you develop your own framework for capturing opportunities for growth and competitive advantage. They will show you how to formulate digital strategies and align their execution across functions, harness the power of digital technologies and ecosystems, and strengthen vigilance and agility throughout your organization.

Leading Digital Transformation will help participants develop their own framework for capturing opportunities for growth and competitive advantage from emerging digital technologies.

You will deeply engage with these topics through classroom sessions, a hands-on simulation, small group work with fellow participants, and conversations with industry experts on some of today’s most cutting-edge topics. Daily integration sessions will help you extract key learnings that apply to your unique situation and consider what digital transformation means for your organization.

Session topics include:

  • Digital Disruption: Strategy, Organization, and Leadership Perspectives
