Design and support your organisation's technology strategy and navigate Industry 4.0.
With an experiential learning immersion and international travel that takes you to Silicon Valley, the home of many global technology companies and start-ups -- this digital leadership course is aimed at developing senior leaders who are required to use technology as a catalyst to access future business opportunities.
To ensure that organisations are equipped to navigate Industry 4.0, leaders need to be well versed in digital trends and disruptive technologies that are shifting and shaping the way organisations craft strategy and compete both locally and globally. Current technology trends such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), automation, robotics; and the Internet of Things will be a key focus area in terms of harnessing digital transformation to drive performance and productivity.
“We are moving into a discontinuous, disruptive, digital world, underpinned by rapid disintermediation and sector shifts. This compels us to explore new ways to drive growth and competitiveness of firms and
organisations." Abdullah Verachia | Faculty, GIBS
"An extremely valuable programme for leadership very relevant to current times". Billal Saloogee | Chief Technology Officer
