Digital Business Models, Platform Strategies & Financial Planning
Module 1 | The New Growth Agenda
Corporate leaders are worried. In this time of pandemic crisis, new ways of thinking and acting are needed more than ever. Even without the current crisis, digitisation has been shrinking traditional profit pools, and growth has been harder than ever for incumbents.
Surveys have demonstrated the scale of the problem:
- 80% of CEOs believe their business models are not economically viable as their sector digitalises
- 94% of CEOs are unhappy with innovation efforts
- 85% of digital investment has generated zero or negative ‘Economic Value Added’
- 90% of corporate start-ups have failed
- While we have to stabilise things right now, we also need to plan for the future and renew how we think about strategy, innovation and where best to invest.
Every company has the potential to grow like Amazon, Apple and Alibaba. They (simply) need to:
- Invest in digital business models and platform strategies
- Re-structure their operations
- Innovate and execute in new ways
- I spent a year analysing in-depth which business models work best in a hyper-connected world and how traditional organisations can, in practice, adopt and adapt them.
This easy-to-consume online video course shows you how. It is based on an in-depth analysis of the relationship between business models and financial performance; world-class case studies; best-practice methods; and frameworks.
