1165 Days ago

The goal of the partnership is to support top management executives in building tools to act in this new world based on the culture of innovation

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., April 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- After the success achieved last year with a NPS of 100 percent (no score was less than nine), Stefanini, a $1B global IT provider with locations in 40 countries, and INSEAD, one of the world's leading and largest graduate business schools, joined forces again to offer the second edition of the digital transformation course. With a goal to engage senior-level executives in tackling the main challenges of digital transformation, the truly global educational experience will take place from April 15-18 on the campus in Fontainebleu, located 75 km from Paris.

During the four-day course,  C-Level executives will be able to discuss the culture of innovation and how they can address learning in their organization every day.  "At Stefanini, we believe that culture and leadership are as critical as new technologies in the process of digital transformation," said Guilherme Stefanini, head of the course with INSEAD.

Developing Competencies and Strengthening Leadership in Digital Transformation

In the first edition, Stefanini's initiative with INSEAD brought together 30 leaders from companies like ALECombustiveis, Sicredi, Tigre, Allianz, Vivo, Nexa, among others.

“The mission of the leader at this time is to get people to understand that digital transformation is much more than simply swapping small pieces of software or small features of our system,” said Joao Tavares, executive director at Sicredi, the first financial cooperatives initiative in Brazil, who attended the course last year. “It’s much more than this. It’s important to emphasize the importance of experimenting, taking risks, and transforming companies through the transformation of people's mentality.”

“Being here allows us to understand the environment that we need to develop the reality of digital transformation and identify the right partners who can enable us to make digital transformation possible in our companies,” said Ricardo Porto, vice president at Nexa,  a global mining company and one of the invested companies of Votorantim portfolio.

Together, Stefanini and INSEAD are able to offer a truly global educational experience that enables executives to develop competencies required to strengthen leadership and digital transformation.

“Through the highly interactive and dialogue-based program, we have determined new ways to drive business results, customer satisfaction, and effective operations in digital transformation,” said Renata Galle, vice president of innovation and digital business at Stefanini North America and APAC. “The goal is to understand strategic change initiatives, ensuring that organizations’ culture adapts to the new changes,” said Galle.

Customized Solutions for Different Businesses

To ensure that companies’ toolsets encompass the solutions their unique business environments need, Stefanini focuses on deep and multi-level customization.

“To face the new digital challenges, we know that there is no one-size-fits-all. Our customization process is based on in-depth collaboration, and it takes place on multiple levels such as content, teaching methods, organizational role and culture,” said Galle. As a result, Stefanini enables the organization’s culture to adapt to new changes, identifying new ways to drive business results, customer satisfaction and effective operations.

The Stefanini and INSEAD program will be delivered through deep immersion at the INSEAD campus in France, Singapore and Abu Dhabi, with the opportunity to expand to the whole executive organization.

“We’re proud to have INSEAD as a partner in one of the most important challenges to be faced today: digital. The methodology and expertise of INSEAD ensures that we choose the best resource to help executives,” said Galle.
