A Honiton training consultancy has launched a new digital leadership training programme.

Cosmic has launched the programme in response to research carried out locally and nationally looking at digital leadership in business.

The evidence suggests that, in many cases, there is little or no real understanding of what digital leadership actually is and how it will impact on their business.

The research identified that many businesses are investing in digital skills, but businesses are yet to address this issue at senior executive and board levels.

The programme will be led by Cosmic’s own digital leaders, Julie Hawker and Kate Doodson.

Julie said: “Many of the businesses we have been working with in recent months have identified a need to address skills development at senior levels, which is why we have taken time to research and respond to this issue.

“Whilst lots of businesses have been addressing the need to ‘digitise’ their operations, not many have yet truly embraced the digital transformation of their business by putting digital in the mix for new services, products and customer experience.”

Learning will cover subjects ranging from the digital workforce, business innovation, digital disruption, strategy and change management.

Cosmic is running free taster sessions, the first two being held in May.
