Organisations are increasingly expecting people to embrace continuous change as a reality via digitally enabled channels. However, the premise by which these companies operate to support their people first needs to evolve for this to be sustainable. There is no better example of that than the recent COVID-19 outbreak and the global rush at technology and non-technology organizations alike to adjust and adapt to an entirely new market and new way of working.

The aim of this course is to equip leaders with the skills required to confidently navigate barriers and enable behavioural change.

Frictionless, automated, personalised travel on demand—that’s the dream of the future of mobility.

Shared mobility, autonomous vehicles, seamless intermodal transit show how the entire way we travel from point A to point B is changing. This transformation is creating a new mobility ecosystem with implications affecting more than just the automotive industry.

In the new mobility ecosystem, value creation opportunities will likely require stakeholders to rethink their business models. Depending on an organisation’s role in the ecosystem, leaders will need to determine whether existing capabilities allow them to deliver the value customers demand—and if not, how to build new strengths. Any actor involved in the movement of people and goods should begin identifying now where it wants to play in the new mobility ecosystem.

Alchemy by Deloitte provides bespoke executive education for senior executives and leaders of organisations. Drawing on the world class faculty both from within Deloitte as well as from leading business schools, The FoM programme is intended to contribute to the leadership abilities of executives in understanding their capabilities against the emerging needs of the ecosystem and to formulate strategies around which areas to focus on and how to be successful in them.
