Power the Future: AI and Data for Strategic Advantage

Tuck Executive Sprint: Four Live Sessions Taught Online Over Two Days by Faculty Thought Leaders

The laws of competitive advantage are changing, rewarding those with the most robust real-time insights rather than the most valuable assets. Companies must use real-time data to turbocharge their products, strategies, and customer relationships to compete in the new digital age. 

Power the Future: AI and Data for Strategic Advantage will help industry leaders make the strategic connections they need to harness data, transform physical products, and implement change in their organizations. This online program is taught by Vijay Govindarajan (VG) and Venkat Venkatraman, two world-renowned innovation and digital strategy experts.

“Power the Future has been a reminder of the outstanding quality of a Tuck education. I was recently appointed to lead AI initiatives at my organization. Being able to tap the expertise in a shared learning environment with Tuck alumni across industries was invaluable. The course accelerated my learning curve in the best possible way.”
—Rebecca Joffrey T’97, director of digital innovation and strategy at Cornell University

“Before coming to Power the Future, I thought I had a grasp on the concepts, because I have an ecommerce business and I was already living in what VG calls the 'Fusion Strategy' future. I was mistaken. I learned that there are many steps I need to take to implement this strategy to keep my company ahead of the curve and ahead of my competitors. I especially liked the case studies. Walking through what existing, familiar companies are doing to implement this strategy helped me to apply these same concepts to my company.”
