Digital Business Network (formerly Divia) brings together key players, the latest topics and up-to-date information in digital business. Research conducted at Aalto University and other international universities meets the latest business cases, providing insight for taking organizations to an entirely new level of digitalization.

Digital Business Network is built on six corner stones: technology, innovation, organization, strategy, data and leadership. Over the course of the year, Digital Business Network members will gain a comprehensive idea of trends in digital business and a framework for understanding change.

Contents and Schedule

It seems that the most baffling question for managers and leaders is knowing which technologies to utilize for future success. And how should we manage these new combinations of machines and human beings? What kind of business advantage are we able to gain through blending the contemporary technology advantage with the best people skills?

Seminars are held in Helsinki city center and run from 09:00 to 15:00. During the day, we will always learn something completely new, but we learn best by exploring so part of the day is always reserved for practical exercises. The goal is to give participants a practical toolbox for managing transformation. Network power will be used in the learning process through group exercises and Thinkathons.
