Who It's For
This online program is designed for mid to senior level managers who need a strategy to lead their business unit or organization through disruption. Leaders who strive to be more innovative in implementing new ideas, staying ahead of the competition, and aligning their people, data, and technology are prime candidates. Participants may be leaders of a functional department, head of a business unit or region, or have general management responsibilities. Since all industries are vulnerable to some manner of disruption, all industries can benefit from this hands-on experience. The program culminates with a capstone project where participants create an action plan for a challenge at a level that is appropriate for their role or responsibility.
