Innovations in business strategies—from platform-based business models to data-driven innovations—also pose a significant disruption. While taking examples from successful high-tech firms, this course explores how companies in any industry can leverage innovative thinking to transform themselves.

About the Seminar

Technology continues to transform business: whether it is artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud computing, or augmented reality, executives and managers must understand the both the potential as well as the risks these technologies pose. In addition, innovations in business strategies—from platform-based business models to data-driven innovations—also pose disruption across a wide swath of the business landscape. This course explores how high-tech companies develop and implement marketing strategies, and how companies in any industry can leverage innovative thinking to transform themselves.
