It seems that everybody in higher education has been talking for some time about a myriad of disruptive forces and the need to respond with effective change. COVID-19 has made all of this harder, creating a “tactical crisis” that forced institutions to align and execute a coordinated response to safeguard students, faculty and staff; transition to remote work for operations; and deliver courses online. But institutions must now face the underlying “strategic crisis” if they are to sustain the tactical response or better yet reimagine how they will thrive amidst the new market realities.

How can institutions leverage industry disruption to drive a new level of strategic organizational alignment? How can institutions leverage this alignment to drive proactive rather than reactive digital transformation? Watch this webinar recording as CEO Wayne Bovier and President Joe Gottlieb host a lively discussion of these questions and answers that are evident from top leadership practices.
