NUS AMP 2- Strategy in Digital Age – Talent & Technology

Thinking strategically can help maintain a competitive advantage. According to another HBS research paper, a substantive definition of the ‘business model’ is a collection of decisions enforced by the authority of the firm on its employees. There are two aspects of a business model – the internal constitution of the firm and the firm’s external alignment – and these are the result of the different degrees of authority a firm has over its employees as opposed to other market actors. This course covers an overview of the business environment in terms of strategy and business models and provides an understanding of how Human Resources can be aligned with business strategy. The course also provides an introduction to talent and technology strategies in the digital age, along with the strategies to become a Diverse and Inclusive organization.

Course Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the concepts of business strategy and business models in detail and understand their frameworks and implementation.
  • Understand the importance of factoring a digital mindset in the workplace and role of HR in implementing a people strategy in the digital age.
  • Learn the concepts of Diversity and Inclusion and the strategies and steps required to infuse this in an organization.
