Because as the manager and decisionmaker, you have the responsibility and must understand what opportunities and risks digitization entails

As a manager it can be difficult to approach digital development. Which technologies should you be aware of? What skills are needed? What short- and long-term benefits can be expected? How does it affect your organization? How to understand the opportunities and take responsibility for implementing digitization in practice.


You get up-to-date digitization knowledge that focuses on business and leadership. You will get an understanding of your own and your organization’s digital maturity. We give you insights and a toolbox in order for you to understand how to turn your digital transformation into a business transformation. After the course we give you the opportunity for 1-1 sparring on your specific challenges based on the exercises you have completed. You will get answers to the following questions:

  • How are your digital skills?
  • What is the connection between digital maturity and value creation?
  • Which technologies do you need to understand – and why?
