Programme Overview

The Chief Digital Officer programme by ISB Executive Education is the first-of-its-kind in India that has been designed by the No. 1 B-School in India* that will help you finesse your digital leadership skills and teach you how to bring about an innovation & transformation mindset in the organisation.

According to a BCG report, almost 70% of digital transformations fall short of their objectives and end up failing. Digital change is critical for any organisation today, but they often overlook one important factor – People. How to make people overcome ogranisational inertia often deep rooted over decades?

For where there is inertia there is also opportunity. The same BCG report also states digital leaders achieve earnings growth that is 1.8 times higher than digital laggards and more than double the growth in total enterprise value.

So what are you waiting for? Enrol today.
