The Innovative Technology Leadership in Post Pandemic Environment


While nobody could have predicted the level of disruption caused by Covid-19, the crisis brought many lessons with it—not least for the business leaders, who in many cases had to scramble to enable their colleagues to work remotely in a short time frame. Over the last several months, business leaders and their teams have learned a lot about functioning in a digital-first world. Many businesses have discovered that productivity remains steady or even grows when team members are able to work from home, while people across the globe have not only enjoyed the flexibility of remote work but have also embraced the convenience and options of the online marketplace.

Today Leaders must be prepared to manage the new ways of doing business when the post-pandemic world arrives, as all signs point to technology and innovation continuing to play a dominant role.

Today’s business leaders need skills in Strategy, Innovation, and Leadership. In a time of unprecedented change, the key to success is learning how to keep pace on a global scale, innovate, and nurture and develop value-creating ideas across the organization. As new digital technologies rapidly change, the demand for digital leaders is growing exponentially.

This five days program will help participants develop their understanding of digital leadership and learn how to apply it to help transform their organization. Regardless of participants' background, this workshop will allow participating organizations to explore and learn how digital leaders can leverage and exploit new technologies for innovation and growth, and provide further insight into the digital landscape.
