About this course

Unconscious bias—everyone has it. But that doesn’t make us bad; it makes us human. While we cannot completely rid ourselves of unconscious bias, we can learn how to recognize it and lessen its impact in the workplace. These are skills that everyone can learn.

You may not be aware of how your unconscious biases can affect your behavior, but unchecked, it can have enormous impact in the workplace and throughout your everyday life. Unconscious bias causes people to unintentionally favor some groups—often ones that are like them—over others. This can lead to differences in who gets hired and recruited, who gets offered new opportunities, and whose voice is listened to. Understanding and mitigating the impact of unconscious bias is a crucial 21st-century global leadership skill. With awareness of unconscious bias and actionable steps to manage it, you will be able to make the best decisions for your organization, your colleagues, and your team. Managing unconscious bias is a vital step in building workplaces that are innovative, dynamic, and inclusive.

In this training, through research-based assessments and exercises, you will move from awareness to action, learning how to interrupt bias and leverage the full potential of diverse teams and colleagues in your workplace.

For learners at all organizational levels, from all industries, backgrounds, and geographies, this training will help you understand what unconscious bias is and introduce you to some necessary skills to counter its negative impact.

The course is taught by instructors with extensive expertise advising and counseling major global companies on strategies to build high-performing and competitive workplaces. Learning these important leadership skills can help you to build and sustain inclusive workplaces and turn diversity into a strategic business advantage.

What you’ll learn

  • Build awareness to understand what unconscious bias is and why it matters.
  • Understand the impact of unconscious bias at work and the impact it has on your decision making.
  • Develop skills to help you recognize and take action to manage bias.
  • Create a goal-setting plan to work toward becoming an inclusive leader by managing your unconscious bias.

About this course

New technologies and “big data” have transformed every facet of business, from accounting to marketing. Technologies like social media, ecommerce platforms, mobile devices, software services, the cloud, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things have created new business processes and products, while displacing and disrupting many others. In order to stay competitive, business leaders need to understand these emerging technologies, assess their inherent opportunities and challenges, and strategically maneuver the organization to maximize the value–and minimize the risk–of digital transformation.

This course will help you assess the most critical digital technologies that affect your business sector and how you can leverage them to realize efficiencies. We’ll discuss when and how to appropriately commoditize the data these technologies produce and ultimately, how the strategic deployment of technology can transform an organization.

What you’ll learn

  • How digital technologies are transforming work, organizations, markets, and the economy.
  • The interplay between organizational strategy and technology.
  • Considerations in making strategic investments and decisions involving digital technology.
  • Key issues in implementing different kinds of systems, including enterprise resource platforms, customer relationship management tools, and knowledge management and business intelligence applications.
  • How to address IT governance and manage organizational change.

Unfortunately, learners from one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations.

About this course

Strong product management drives successful business model implementation. Learn about the key decisions, underlying tradeoffs, and implementation decisions needed for each phase of the product life and master business and organizational logic to ensure product success in the marketplace.

In this course, part of the Digital Product Management MicroMasters program, you will be introduced to key frameworks for decision-making based on both economic and organizational considerations. These frameworks inform a rising product manager on how to:

  • use customer co-creation and understanding of their needs to become a “champion” for user-centric development in digital technology.

  • use a data-and metrics-driven approach to make product life cycle decisions including pricing, versioning, maintenance, helpdesks and end of life.
  • shape the direction of the product based on experimentation and system design thinking by learning from product roadmaps, competitive considerations, and allied evolution of demand in digital markets.

Caveat: This is not a course on software development, architecture or product marketing. The role of a product manager is to work with these functions effectively, such that the interests of a product (e.g., its profitability) and its customers are best served. Thus, the perspectives and skills covered in this course are integrative and allied with decision-making in their orientation.

What you’ll learn

  • Product line planning and road mapping alternatives
  • Idea generation, customer need assessment, co-creation, definition and validation of minimal viable product (MVP) and allied set up of requirement documents

  • How to launch a product and create a go-to-market strategy to champion your product.

  • Backgroundin three areas:
    • Project and process (operations) management concepts
    • Marketing concepts
    • Software engineering concepts

Learners may develop background in these three areas either through on the job exposure or by auditing 3rd or 4th year university level or online courses before taking DI503.
