Methodology

90% of what we retain while learning happens when we go through an immersion that involves an experiential learning through workshops, real time observation, discussions and peer to peer learning and practical application of learnings. This is why we have designed a global leadership program that takes participants to the part of the world where the expertise is and where digital transformation is happening.
The four modules of the program have been designed with the aim to connect leaders to the content, individuals and organisations that are driving innovation and digital transformation in key regions of the world, Europe, US and Asia, using a combination of different tools such as In-Company sharing experience, Peer to Peer learning, expert panels, technology update and workshops.
