Insight from Course Convener
“The goal of a corporation in pushing for digital transformation is to reimagine the way it develops digital capabilities, builds resilience and agility. It is not a responsibility that can be outsourced; rather it has to be internally and meticulously developed (coming from inside rather than acquire from outside). Digital transformation is not to mimic some good practices but to internalise, challenge, and create effective practices. This Digital Transformation Programme provides a total solution in developing, implementing, monitoring, and fine-tuning the digital transformation strategy in an agile manner. Almost all companies, be it for-profit or not-for-profit, are looking in digital transformation. Taking this professional certificate shall prepare you for such role or participation in the companies.”

Industry Expert Sentiment
“Digitalisation is no longer a good to have. Companies that do not adapt will cease to exist as they will lack the competitive edge. However, many smaller companies do not know where to start and when they start, they do not know how to sustain. This programme aims to guide individuals and companies through a structured process in implementing Digitalisation. Participants will be able to craft a digitalisation journey for their company as well as the implementation plan taking advantage on funded solutions.”
