Digital Leadership for Digital Transformation

A Masterclass for Cohorts

Digital has emerged as the primary driver of winners and losers across industries, and the pandemic has only accelerated the speed at which digital transformation is required. But while trillions of dollars is being spent on digital transformation, only a small fraction of organizations are seeing the growth and returns they expected.

Companies can’t win in the digital economy with playbooks from the analog age. Impactful digital transformation requires new models and approaches, and successful organizations demystify digital and identify the strategic, technology and organizational changes required to win.  

Duke CE’s Digital Leadership for Digital Transformation Masterclass will equip leaders with the knowledge and hands-on experience required to develop new digital mindsets, understand the impacts of emerging technologies, apply new strategy and executional models, and develop the confidence they need to lead their organizations through this generational change and enable transformation at speed and scale.
