Digital changed the world, businesses were turned upside down and COVID-19 in 2020 has accelerated this trend. Consumers have unprecedented access to information and services that change how they are seen as customers. Digital disruption is all about how this has happened, the winners and losers, the new rules of the game. Digital transformation is all about how individuals, firms and governments are responding, changing their habits, ways of working and expectations of any relationship. These are radical shifts that everyone needs to understand and continually anticipate in the second half of the digitally exponential chess board. All 12 lessons in the course includes a handy worksheet that you can download and which summarises the key lessons for your application and future reference.

In this course I'll be teaching you about the following;

  • The winners and losers of digital disruption; Kodak, Instagram, Nokia, Waze and more

  • Over The Top business models and the utilities they disintermediate

  • Blockchain and bitcoin; how it works and why it is a threat

  • Self-disruption through internal innovation and employee incentivisation

  • The FNB Codefest which was featured as a case study in Harvard Business Review

  • Customer-centric design thinking and why big companies need it

  • Principles and stages of exponential growth curves

  • The rise of digital customers, the decline of physical networks

  • How firms need "the crazy ones" to drive radical product innovation

  • How the Internet of Things creates ecosystems for customers

  • Agile, DevOps and the principles of new ways of working

  • The "Innovators Dilemma" of risking everything to stay ahead

  • Virtual Reality, Artifical intelligence, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things

  • Obsession with customer experience and outside-in design thinking

  • Digitisation of industries, firms and the impact of intelligent automation

  • Models of exponential growth and technology adoption

  • Incubators, accelerators and the startup ecosystem

  • Authentic leadership in a digitally changing world

  • The new millennial generation and the customer of the future

In this course I’ll be engaging you 1 on 1, as well as providing you with visual insights and downloadable resources to support and embed your learning. We can also engage around the course content and once you’ve enrolled you’ll have access to it as I keep it updated. I’ve researched these topics in my phd, written extensively about them on my blog and spoken about them at international conferences. I’ve also had to adapt to them in my own life in the same way that you probably have. I look forward to seeing you in the lessons and please remember to rate and review the course. It's a privilege to be part of your learning journey.

Been a great match, good start, lots of interesting information and content and has me thinking differently.

Danet6 October 2020

Glad I took this course. It all coincides with the way we are living and how digital we have become. Some the brands that are no longer with us are now a memory. It tells us how we have to be active and learn more about changes that are happening every day. Great course.

Jerome2 October 2020

it is strange now that I am listening, it make sense why we sometimes lose track. it make sense now why everything is going digital

Zanele1 October 2020

It was a perfect match for me, great job. I love the fact that I have to create disruption within me and I got that from this great course. 'Be the change you want to see'...

Amanda30 September 2020

Yes. To quickly learn how to have meeting now online with MSteams and not drive and see people fiscally in order to do your job was huge for me. Awesome.!!!!

Heinz17 August 2020

Excellent course for those without any background and the entrenched person; well rounded and practical content. The differentiation of the two main concepts are clear and simply explained. I'd recommend this for anyone: current or future users of technologies get a synopsis of why this is happening, dispelling fears and unease, and for others an entrepreneurial interested may be stimulated during this course.

Elmer14 August 2020

Es importante ve cómo se va moviendo el comercio, los negocios y la forma de hacer las cosas en un mundo cambiante y más en este tiempo en que estos se dan muy rápidos. Con lo aprendido en este curso puedo ponerlo en práctica en mi trabajo, agregando valor al mismo y también supliendo las necesidades de los clientes.

Chante31 July 2020

Very interesting course. I most appreciated the examples used to practically explain the content. Definitely worth the time. Thank you Peter!

Benson28 July 2020

I have learned a lot and i feel much more motivated to invest more into my company using new technology models.

Melissa23 July 2020

I have been with a company that has made system changes to keep up with technology and what is going on. You have to be ready to make a change when necessary.

Michelle23 July 2020

There were some interesting examples and concepts but it could have had more actual pointers/advice to follow. The subtitles didn’t always match the words that the presenter was saying.

Ereeza22 July 2020

It was at the perfect level for anyone that understands technology but need to be up skilled on digitization and the all the new buzz words that goes with that.

Williams17 July 2020

It was very informative and good for me as a researcher to always thinking critically on how to enhance my idea to meets up the future needs, if possible disrupt my idea to create a better one.

Dean17 July 2020

This course is really awesome, Peter really gets what it takes to win in the new age of business and it's really cool that he has shared his knowledge with the world.

Ryan17 July 2020

Insightful, Informative and Very Interesting. I would highly recommend this course to everyone undertaking a Digital Transformation Journey.
