The objective of this course is to help students understand critical management concepts and frameworks related to digital business strategy, innovation, and transformation. As organizations move toward a digital reality (more natural and intuitive ways for technology to better organizations, individuals and society), creation of new business models and approaches are essential. This course will examine how companies such as Uber and Netflix are disrupting existing business models and ushering in unprecedented convergence of people, business and things. For many organizations, "going digital" is imperative to long-term viability and the need to acquire and develop digital capabilities is essential. This course will give students knowledge and frameworks related to digital transformation, systems thinking and digital leadership as well as an understanding of movements in the technology industry that are influencing change toward a more digital approach to business.
