November 2019 — Across the business landscape, data, analytics, and artificial intelligence-driven processes are transforming our work. This transformation poses a series of business and ethical challenges alike as a new type of digital firm emerges.

- Explain how “collisions” between AI-driven/digital and traditional/analog firms are reshaping competition, altering the structure of our economy, and forcing traditional companies to rearchitect their operating models
- Explain the opportunities and risks created by digital firms
- Describe the new challenges and ethical responsibilities for the leaders of both digital and traditional firms
