Program description

Digital Transformation for Organisational Resilience

Organisations often face challenges related to adapting to new management and operational practises due to the use of disruptive IT technology. This becomes even more problematic when change is continuous and accelerated, as not all organisations are flexible enough to survive under these conditions and often exhibit cultural and organisational inertia.

In the summer school, participants will learn how to analyse work processes and organisations and develop new ways of working through an interactive design process using intrapreneurial and participatory actions and experiments. Participants will visit organisations and interview various stakeholders.

The final goal is to provide scenarios and solutions that address concrete problems of stakeholders and are developed using digital technologies. In this view, cities, businesses and administrations are seen as enablers as they provide a common (physical) ground on which other organisations work and collaborate.

An example of such an environment will be presented to summer school participants. They will work on the challenges presented by the "Digital Cities" project in one of the largest cities in the country, often referred to as "Smart Pond". Several organisations (companies, institutions and other actors) are working in different specific areas of implementation of digital technologies to improve the resilience of the city, their organisations and test the implementation of solutions to some of the social challenges that affect the world today.

The final solutions to the challenges will be presented as proposed experiments that could be implemented by the participating organisations. As such, students will pitch a strategic plan for applying digital transformation in a selected organisation.

The summer school is organised by the University in Ljubljana and this year will be held on-line. Case studies will be conducted by leading companies and organisations from various industries such as pharmaceutical, energy, banking, gaming, mobility, insurance and health.
