About Programme

Fuelled by technology, digital disruption, transformation and innovation are today’s business realities. Digitisation infiltrates and interacts with every aspect of enterprise strategy, value creation and operations. Yet, firms must also nurture a digital innovation mindset across their executive ranks. In these digital environments, the role of a CIO is expanding to encompass a multiplicity of roles and responsibilities including catalysing strategy, galvanising digital innovation mindsets, guiding enterprise digitisation and transformation processes, and establishing the structures and processes for digital innovation and operations.

Today’s CIOs must possess the skills that help them transcend innovation, productivity, efficiency and digital transformation. This programme will help you gain ambidextrous mindsets to align IT and business strategy. The programme has been designed to help you expand your thinking and equip you with the tools that aid business transformation for a radical new world.

Attending this programme will equip you with powerful tools like business model analysis, new business models, balanced scorecard, and governance analysis. Above all, you will position yourself to become an organisational leader and executive partner in shaping your firm’s digital business strategy and prioritising new digital innovation projects.
