About the Course

The world is changing-rapidly. Technological acceleration continues to reshape and redefine the competitive landscape. Competitive advantage, once thought to be robust is now, at best fleeting. The advent of digitalisation has rewritten the rule book. Traditional ‘paper’ documentation such as the commercial contract is evolving.

The advent of smart contracts, powered by Blockchain carries the promise of significantly altering the corporate environment permanently- but there are a plethora of considerations and challenges that lay ahead and must still be met.

The quest for sustainability in competitive advantage and the impact of disruptive technology are key drivers for the necessity of continued innovation. This innovation in itself is the key for the creation of a sustainable competitive advantage within an increasingly ‘digital’ world.

This course has been specifically designed to delve into the key aspects of smart contracts, and at the same time provide a wider; strategic framework for the organisation hoping to capitalise and understand this digital revolution.

The course is an immersive experience, with emphasis on open dialogue and examination of key issues relative to corporate success.

Who Will Benefit

  • Strategic decision makers
  •  Senior Management
  • Legal/paralegal personnel wishing to gain an understanding of digital con-tracting
  • Procurement and supply chain personnel
  • Anyone else interested in smart contracts
