About the Course

In recent years, innovative businesses have used a range of novel digital tools, from apps to AI, to invent new business models and delight customers with convenience, high quality, and low prices. This wave of technology fueled disruption has already transformed many industries, and it’s just getting started. This course explores how new and existing business strategies can be improved through the introduction of technologies and digital systems.
The focus of the digital strategy course is the rebalancing of three key relationships: human minds and machines; physical products and digital platforms; and the core (centralized knowledge) and the crowd (decentralized knowledge). You’ll be introduced to examples of companies that have excelled at finding a harmony between tradition and technology. Furthermore, you’ll be supported in uncovering ways to relate these principles to your organization through weekly, ongoing project submissions which encourage you to apply concepts to a business scenario.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the ways in which the strategies for new or existing businesses can be improved with transformative technologies like artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Understand the need to rebalance the three key relationships: human minds and machines; physical products and digital platforms; and the core and the crowd
  • Develop a review of how transformational technologies could fit into a business of your choice
