Leadership Skills in a Digital Era
Last update: 27.09.2021
What this course about?

There are several leadership trends out there that it is very much aligned with how the world is gradually becoming a digital global village. The basic fact about leadership today is that it’s becoming more collective and less individual. Technology influences values, beliefs, social, economic and political structure, also the way we view our world and the way we think and behave. This is why leaders must be abreast of this trend and seek out ways to keep up with the rapid growth in globalization.

Digital has changed the way most of us shop, bank, arrange travel, study, talk to friends and family, read books, listen to music, and watch films. Some people are 'digital natives' having grown up with the Internet. Others are 'digital immigrants' and are at different stages of adapting to the digital world. It will be increasingly important that those at the top of the organisation have a strong understanding of digital concepts and the benefit that they bring.

Digitalization is a signature of our time. It offers almost unlimited opportunities for firms, public authorities and citizens. At the same time, it makes a steamroller of existing markets, organisations, and technologies, causing deep societal challenges. Given this background, the overall purpose of this programme is to give trainees a deep understanding of how digitalization transforms industries and society and to develop capabilities for taking a leading role in embracing and shaping this transformation.
