Take the lead in digital transformation

Leading digital transformation requires both an understanding of technologies driving the change, as well as the ability to lead the organisational transformation. A robust business model that is built on top of the technology is therefore the key to digital transformation and sustained value creation.

The companies can choose to develop new technologies by taking the customer needs into account or build a product/service and a business model with improvements to existing technologies. What approach should one adopt? This programme opens one’s mind to the different possibilities and provides a framework to analyse and come up with a blue print.

This programme has been conceived and developed by the following institutions: Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU), top three most innovative university in Germany, in cooperation with Fraunhofer Institute of Integrated circuits (Fraunhofer IIS) and the Indian Institute of Management of Bangalore (IIMB) the best business school in central Asia. Together, these institutions have contributed with their best knowledge, experiences and networks to support organisations take the lead in digital transformation. To this end, the programme modules have been carefully designed to address the question of building transformational business models using technological advances.  

The participants will be awarded a joint certificate of successful completion of the program.
