EMGN Summer Academy Program

About the course 

Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business,  fundamentally changing how you operate and deliver value to customers. It's also a cultural  change that requires organizations to continually challenge the status quo, experiment, and  get comfortable with failure. 

This short digital summer academy is supposed to help leaders in their respective Credit  Guarantee Institutions to understand and lead your way through a digital transformation. We  try to address the digital transformation from three perspectives: the strategic view, the  organisational view and the innovation view.
