Digital Strategies for Transforming Your Business

next course dates: November 15–17, 2021

In this period of digital disruption, businesses focused narrowly on value chains are at a disadvantage. Next-generation enterprises need to think more broadly about their business ecosystems, leverage digitization to understand their customers better, and establish options for future success. Drawing on cutting-edge research, this course from Stephanie Woerner and other MIT faculty engages participants in a framework for seizing on all of the above.

This course will give you the tools to propel business strategy internally, inform shifts in focus, and develop important capabilities. You'll learn:

  • How your business needs to change to mitigate threats and seize opportunities
  • How to begin to create a compelling vision for your enterprise’s success
  • The role of management and the board in business strategy transformation—and what guardrails leadership needs to keep transformation on track
  • The importance of partnerships in creating integrated solutions that solve customer problems

For Future dates, see the course listing on the MIT Sloan Exec Ed website

Led by Faculty Director Barbara Wixom, this course investigates the I-W-S framework, which approaches data monetization in three ways: improving core business processes using data, wrapping analytics around offerings, and selling information solutions. It also explores the five data monetization capabilities: data assets, data platforms, data science, acceptable data use, and customer understanding. Participants will leave the program with a personalized data monetization strategy suited to their organizational context.

This program is delivered in collaboration with GetSmarter. Students earn an official certificate of completion from the MIT Sloan School of Management.
