Corporate Governance


Innovation and Growth Programme


Digital technologies are transforming every industry, redefining competition and blurring sector boundaries. As more organisations embark on systematic, data-driven, end-to-end digital transformation journeys, their leadership needs are fast evolving. Increasingly, such enterprises seek directors with the strategic capabilities to guide the re-engineering of the entire organisation.

Directors must also be able to understand the complexity of governing in a fast-changing world that is driven by digital disruption and speed. They must be able to help the board anticipate and overcome challenges that arise from navigating this new landscape.

Through its Corporate Governance Centre, INSEAD’s Innovation and Growth Programme aims to better equip directors with the strategic capabilities to direct in such an environment. Through lectures and discussions, participants will enhance their understanding of the impact of digital technology on strategy formulation and execution. They will explore how advances in emerging technologies such as blockchain, 3D printing and big data may ultimately affect their enterprise. They will also consider strategic questions such as the critical role networks and platforms play in innovation and growth, and in partnerships and alliances.
