Leveraging Emerging Technologies for Future-Ready Organization

Elective Course

Purpose and description of the course

The key to organizational success in the coming decade is leveraging technology to future-proof the business organization. Meaningful digital transformation can be achieved by paying careful attention to the emerging technological advancements in four key areas: computation (e.g., Quantum Computing), data management (Blockchain), automation (Robotics), and decision making (generative and explainable artificial intelligence).

At its core, digital transformation is about how to future proof the business organization, leading to new revenue streams, more efficient operations, and better employee experiences. Futureproof organizations learn how to deal with uncertainty about the future, anticipate change, and leverage it for generating value. In order to accomplish this objective, it’s vital to understand which new technologies are available, appropriate, and optimal in the context of the organization and its business environment.

This course will provide students with tools and insight about how to scan, anticipate and, shape the future by creating a future-proof strategy and actionable insights.


Learning Objectives:

At the end of the course, the participant should be able to:

  • Identify and explain the concepts and methodologies that relate to futureproofing organizations, including key terminology, underlying assumptions, and how concepts and methodologies related to one another.
  • Demonstrate how the concepts and methodologies that were presented in the course can be applied in the process of developing technology-driven business innovation.
  • Evaluate futureproofing strategy through theory-based critical assessment and discuss the results, including how to mitigate the prevailing challenges as well as how to move ahead with the development of the underlying innovation.
