Executive Guide to Digital Transformation

Newly endorsed by the Good Governance Academy

This webinar showcases a newly endorsed course, the Executive Guide to Digital Transformation.

The course provider is Executive Education Online.


This course is delivered on a new platform, which is home to a series of Executive Level guides and courses.

This platform is also host to the draft How-To Playbooks being developed by The ESG Exchange.

The platform’s curated content is aimed specifically at widening awareness and educating leaders who can make a difference, raising the profile of critical, but often misunderstood topics.

These topics are all explained in non-technical, business language.

About the course

This course stands out as unique and comprehensive program, structured around the Four Ares – a term coined by Enterprise Value expert John Thorp, that explains Governance as ‘Doing Things Right’.  These areas all centre on achieving the desired benefits and delivering incremental value through essential capabilities.

The Executive Guide to Digital Transformation helps executives foster adaptability through agility and continual readjustment. Furthermore, it underscores the proactive role of monitoring and reporting on expected benefits.

Crucial to the success of any transformation initiative, is the adept handling of human resources and financial considerations, which this course delves into extensively.

The course provides strategies for:

  • Optimizing people productivity,
  • Maximizing investment returns, and
  • Enhancing operational and financial performance.

The program equips executives with the tools necessary for successful transformation. It also places a strong emphasis on capturing lessons learned for continuous improvement and fostering a culture of psychological safety within organizations.

Addressing another vital aspect, the course explores stakeholder commitment and ownership, offering tools for tracking and reporting benefits and outcomes over the investment lifecycle.

The course’s comprehensive approach readies executive leaders to make a difference, by confidently steering and guiding successful digital transformation initiatives, with strategic clarity and effective execution.
