TRAINING: Digital-Physical Transformation for the Public Sector

Elevate your Digital Transformation strength – add Digital-Physical Transformation literacy and Design Thinking practice to your tool kit.

The world we live in

We are entrenched in Digital Transformation that merges humans and cyberspace, resulting in profound societal and economic transformations.

But we are also in the thick of accelerating the digitalization of the physical world. It merges the billions of things and spaces we interact with and occupy daily with that same cyberspace we’re in already. The resulting data and interaction between humans and smart things have spawned a Digital-Physical Transformation, an inextricable part of the overall Digital Transformation imperative and effort.

The course

This workshop teaches physical digitalization and its applications and impacts. Through presentation, real-world examples, and interactive Design Thinking techniques, this expert-led training will elevate your Digital Literacy in Digital-Physical Transformation, with the Internet of Things (IoT) at its core.  Design Thinking will help you develop ways to elicit the real needs of end-users and citizens to innovate digital-physical solutions.
