Course description

Organizational Design for Digital Transformation

Earn an official certificate of professional achievement from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

As technology continues to reshape industries, many companies are seeking large-scale digital transformation as a way to maximize results and get ahead of their competition. To succeed in the digital economy, established businesses must develop and apply new technology and organizational capabilities.

In the Organizational Design for Digital Transformation online short course from the MIT Sloan School of Management, Faculty Director Jeanne Ross offers an in-depth exploration of the five key dimensions of digital transformation, and how successful transformation can occur when systematically driven. These five dimensions form the foundational design principles for organizations seeking to leverage new technologies for innovation. The program also explores how business leaders can influence their organizational mindset to change deeply held, traditional practices. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll examine ways to facilitate digital transformation in your company through business design and strategy, and earn an MIT Sloan digital certificate, online and at your own pace.
