Certification in Digital Leadershíp

I found the certification to be incredibly useful, and that it provides good tools in the development of digital management. The certification gave me a good framework and language that is easy for employees to gather around. Good days in Aalborg, and a nice arena for exchanging experiences with other companies.

I chose to participate in the certification because I wanted expertise and tools that could help me in the dialogue with customers to understand where they stand in relation to their own wishes for digital transformation. This has proven to be very useful in relation to the customers I work with, both in relation to digital maturity and skills they should possess. It has created good dialogues and concrete things to address.

Reidar Stølan
Partner and Senior Advisor

"I chose to get certified for at least two reasons.

  1. My clients get the opportunity to support the dialogue about digitization with data
  2. It gives my clients peace of mind that we are grounded in academia

Security and trust in tools and consultants are crucial for the customer when we work with digital transformation."
