develop a strategic response to digital disruption
Disruption is one of the most popular terms in management today. The surge in interest comes in large part from the dramatic opportunities and threats being created by today’s powerful digital technologies. The cloud now conveniently and inexpensively packages incredible processing power and digital storage, while inexpensive bandwidth and versatile smartphones make digital a ubiquitous part of modern life. The possibilities for new products, services and business models promise to substantially impact almost every sector of the economy even those where digital has already brought important changes.
Strategy in the Age of Digital Disruption provides the strategic tools, concepts and perspectives that will allow you to develop a strategic response to the new digital possibilities and to then align your organisation for effective strategy execution. It will support you in becoming more proactive in the digital domain, help you turn digital threats into opportunities, and allow you to leverage digital to create competitive advantage and enhanced performance.
How you benefit
- Understand how digital can disrupt your industry by transforming the industry value chain, patterns of demand and competitive pressures
- Leverage digital to develop compelling value propositions that allow you to turn disruption from a threat to an opportunity
- Execute on digital strategies by aligning key activities across your organisation with new value propositions and by balancing strategic agility for a digital world with the longer-term perspective required to build key resources
Strategy in the Age of Digital Disruption is a meeting place for two groups. It is designed for:
- Executives who are in traditional leadership positions - of business units, products and functions - who need to better leverage digital in their current leadership activities.
- Executives who already have deep expertise and passion for digital and whose roles and projects are becoming increasingly strategic for their organisations.
Together you will learn how to drive a strategic approach to digital opportunities in your organisations.
Given the strategic orientation of the programme, participants should typically have at least 10 years of professional experience.

We do this in myriad ways that build on the high-quality delivery and expertise for which INSEAD is renowned. There are multidimensional interactions with peers and world-class faculty, individual learning support from our coaches, certification upon successful completion, and real-time application back to participants’ own context.

The world’s going digital, but is your company ready to make the change? Sometimes having the technology is not enough.
For over a decade companies have been urged to “digitalise” or risk getting left behind. While many accept this as a reality, we argue that the precept is at best confusing and at worst unclear for those eager to act.
