Why take this course?
Contemporary organizations are both affected by and need to adapt to digital technologies. A 2021 report from Harvard Business Review suggests that investments in Digital Transformation are projected to top $6.8 trillion by 2023. Digital transformation enables significant business improvements such as operational performance or customer experience through digital technologies such as analytics, IoT and AI. Although digital technologies play a central role in the transformation process, technology itself is only a part of the complex puzzle that organizations must address to succeed in their digital journey. Organizational change is key to the success of the digital journey, including changes in structures, capabilities and culture. Organizational inertia and resistance can impede the unfolding of an organization’s Digital Transformation.
