The Board Masterclass - Dealing with Digital Transformation
The second course in a series of half-day workshops designed for professionals with board experience who are interested in staying up to date with the latest developments which affect their board roles.
The workshop is designed to be interactive and is run by recognised experts in their field.
The sessions are followed by networking drinks to give you the opportunity to meet informally with our speakers and fellow delegates.
Attendance at each workshop will entitle attendees to receive a special FT NED Programme Board Masterclass Certificate of Continuing Professional Development for 5 hours of structured learning.

- Introduce new business models
- Design winning moves
The increasingly digital economy demands that Boards have a swift understanding of the structure and economics of their business and, in particular, how it can create value. Data has become the most valuable source for competitive advantage and for Board engagement with management teams. Despite the underlying technologies, the leadership requirements transcend any specific domain knowledge – and is the key to digital transformation.
This practical course will lead participants through the principles, pre-requisites, approaches and techniques of driving digital transformation. In addition, inspiration from organisations across sectors will be provided.
The participants will also carry out a self-assessment of the current state of key processes in their own organisation; by the end of the course, they will have an initial diagnosis of fitness for the digital economy and a plan for relevant actions.
The course is highly interactive and action-oriented.
