Program's message

In today's 4.0 era, digital transformation is inevitable and vital for most businesses.

Businesses that are quick and effective in digital transformation will seize many opportunities to make a breakthrough; and businesses that are slow or inefficient in digital transformation will become backward or collapse.

Specifically, surveys indicate that:

  • 87% of companies think that the development of digital technology will radically impact their industry; but only 44% are prepared for it (according to Deloitte).
  • Companies that are fast in digital transformation achieve 3 times more business goals than those that are slow (according to Adobe).
  • Less than 30% of companies succeed in digital transformation due to a lack of clear vision and leadership commitment (according to BCG).

So how can leaders and Chief Digital Officers of businesses do the right thing and do their job well to lead the digital transformation process successfully?

The answer lies in the "Chief Digital Officer / CDO" program designed and implemented by PACE Institute of Management (which has over 20 years of experience in leadership development, training experts and coaching employees for thousands of businesses).
