Programme Benefits

Organisations are exposed to fundamental change by various drivers. More extensive requirements from the business side and newly available commodity services, for example, force IT organisations to reinvent themselves. At the same time, information technology is always a major driver for change concerning the whole organisation. It enables new business models, requires adopted strategies, changes operations and is a facilitator as well as a driver for business transformation.

Transformation requires skills, competence and a methodology. With the Business Engineering Framework developed at the University of St.Gallen and widely used in business transformation initiatives there is a holistic approach available. It combines the relevant management fields and leadership aspects to guide you through successful transformation projects.
