HSG Seminar: Business Engineering Accelerated


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.

With our Executive Programme on Business Engineering, we provide you with a condensed seminar introducing the relevant Business Engineering concepts and giving you a broad understanding of the different components of Business Transformation Management. In eight intensive days, you will acquire an understanding of the concepts, discuss them with fellow executives and apply them to your own business.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to this challenging and special programme on the beautiful Executive Campus of the University of St.Gallen.
