#Course: Leading Digital

A course by TMG Muenchen

Information about the course

The Digital Leader: 
Value Network leaders of Industrie 4.0 face the following new challenges:

Virtual Team leaders close to the value exchanges are empowered to make decisions within the common goal established. To make decisions that bring the target mutual value, they have to understand the value that each member of their team is trying to achieve.

Because the information needed to make effective decisions is about the present and the future, the leader can’t rely on yesterday’s information; they must be constantly sifting through information passing across the Value Network to identify and act on the weak signals of future change.

The most sustainable competitive advantage in the value network is the ability to understand customer and other stakeholder insights, and to be the first mover in acting on those insights to deliver new value.

Is this course for you?

If you've answered "I can't" to any of the questions above, then this is the right course for you.

Learning Objectives

  • 1) Leading Beyond the Edge. Digital Age tools enable you to lead beyond your unit, organization, and geography, to provide innovative solutions to customers and other stakeholders.

  • 2)Building Deep Trust Relationships. In the Digital Age, trust replaces formal authority as the basis for leadership.

  • 3) Forming and Leading Virtual Teams. By recognizing that the Digital Age relentlessly shrinks time and space, virtual teams – when properly formed and led – turn this compression into an advantage over traditional teams.

  • 4)Collaborating and Co-Creating the Future. Multi-organizational value networks, formed from a portfolio of relationships with customers and stakeholders, are replacing traditional, single-company-owned, linear value chains. This new business model requires leaders to adopt a “co-creation mindset.”

  • 5)Learning Dynamically. The only sustainable competitive advantage in the Digital Age is the capability to learn, adapt, implement, and learn as you go, faster and better than your competitors.
