About

Digitalization brings new demands on how to control organizations.
These requirements mean reassessment of what the contribution of the
organization's technical assets are - from a strict focus on cost to a
focus on innovation.

This new logic brings a number of areas into conflict given the the
how we work today, and thus places new demands on leadership and
management of organizations. The course is attacking this problem image
by highlighting key managerial and financial issues with the aim to
strengthen the student's ability to create opportunities for digital
assets.

Through a combination of case studies and lectures, students work on
tackling the central issues during the first half of the course. In the
second half the students work practically with assessing and designing
the control of an existing organization with challenges related to
digitalization. The result of this work, will be concrete
recommendations on how the organization should work to strengthen their
digital skills.
