It’s not the technology: it’s the people and processes

As digital disruption continues to reshape industries, organisations are under enormous pressure to stay ahead of the competition. But it is a challenge. More than 80% of digital transformations fail. Many of these initiatives perform so badly that they are abandoned; others fall so far short of their goals with such high costs that they provide little to negative returns.

The problem is not the new technologies or systems themselves. Most digital transformations fail because of inadequate or ad hoc management of people and processes.

Leading Change in an Age of Digital Transformation is an immersive and experiential programme designed for senior executives leading digital transformation initiatives in their organisation. This advanced programme for digital leaders gives you the understanding and the competitive insights to avoid the critical pitfalls and drive long-term success.

Together with INSEAD faculty and leaders from a diversity of sectors, you will explore the complex change dynamics of digital transformation across three distinct phases: Initial Ignition, Lift-off and Launch, and Sustained Success. You will dig deep into the unique risk factors involved in each of these three phases, using grounded but practical frameworks and leveraging specific tools to address the real-world challenges in each phase of the transformation through to ultimate success.

The programme empowers you to beat the odds and ensure that your organisation captures all the advantages of digital disruption, today and tomorrow.

How you benefit

  • Enhance your understanding of the unique aspects of leading digital transformation change
  • Elevate key skills in change leadership relative to people and process across all three stages of digital transformation - Initial Ignition, Lift-off and Launch and Sustained Success
  • Leave with a concrete action plan for your own digital transformation initiative.

Participant profile

Leading Change in an Age of Digital Transformation is designed for senior executives and senior middle managers who lead strategic change related to digital transformation initiatives in their organisations. While individual participants are completely welcome, it is beneficial for several managers within the same organisation (up to three managers) to come together as existing or potential members of a digital transformation initiative team.

This programme qualifies for the INSEAD Certificate in Global Management.

Side-stepping the three reasons most companies fail to transform digitally

The possibilities are exciting. At the same time, the pace is such that those who lag are likely to find themselves not only falling behind and finishing last, but cut out of the race all together.
