Building Digital Mindset

This is a new, bite-sized programme of online learning that will build your confidence in and awareness of the key skills that you need to be effective in a fast-paced digital world.

You’ll learn about:

  • Why we all need a digital mindset: Myth-busting and explaining how it can help you develop your skill set
  • Curiosity and disruptive thinking techniques: Three approaches for thinking differently at work to help prompt innovative thinking
  • Working collaboratively: Examples of ways of working with people to get better outcomes and deliver at pace
  • Using data to make decisions: Boosting confidence and developing insight that helps influences stakeholders and decision-makers
  • Managing change: Supporting with action plan

You won’t learn about:

Technical digital or IT skills.


What you can expect

The programme is delivered through a mix of online resources, including videos, downloads, activities, self-assessment and live webinars, all hosted on an online platform.

You’ll be committing to approx. 5 hours learning across a month, and attending both webinars, which will include a Q&A.

Timeline

It’s free to take part. IGD is running this as a pilot as part of our charitable objective of supporting the industry in developing digital capability.

By taking part in this pilot, you’ll be helping us shape and develop the programme for the next phase, so please bring an open mind and be prepared to share your feedback along the way.


Is it right for you?

The programme focuses on key personal skills, rather than technical capability so it will be suitable for a broad range of commercial and non-commercial roles, and across different levels/grades.

You will find it particularly useful if you are working in a project team or are responsible for managing teams or stakeholders.

It probably isn’t right for you if you are already working in a digital role. However, do get contact us below to let us know if you are looking to develop these skills further, as we may be able to support through other services.
