The Stanford Center for Professional Development and the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) merge their key competencies grounded in years of extensive experience in education, research and practice in the fields of digital technology, human centered innovation, Design Thinking and digital leadership to offer a comprehensive approach that considers the multiple layers and the dynamic of change. The resulting Digital Transformation Leadership Cycle offers a clearly defined scope of action for leaders who want to face the complexity of that challenge.
As a participant, within 3 month, you will go through three building blocks of training and practice and explore the levels of value creation in digital transformation:
BLOCK 1: HUMAN-CENTERED VALUE CREATION
Get to know and apply Design Thinking as a leadership strategy for human-centered value creation which helps you keeping the focus on your most important stakeholders.
BLOCK 2: VALUE CREATION WITH DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY
Grow your innovation skills by creating concrete prototypical solutions and develop your knowledge for value creation with digital technology that can serve as starting point or accelerator in transformation.
BLOCK 3: BUSINESS VALUE CREATION
Get inspired by strategies of successful transformation in the Silicon Valley community to transfer these principles into your own context of business value creation.
In block 1 and 2 you will explore and practice Design Thinking as a strategy for digital transformation – in block 3 you will be able to get a behind-the-scenes look into Silicon Valley´s successful practices of putting the strategy into practice.*
*If you are unable to participate in Block I or Block II on short notice due to the current situation, we offer you the option of postponing your participation until the next cycle of the program. Please note that if regulations in Stanford, California stipulate that the course may not be held in classroom format due to COVID, Block III will be offered virtually. Even with a virtual format, you will receive a certificate from the Stanford Center for Professional Development and Hasso Plattner Institute upon completion of the course.
