Future-proofing cancer organisations for uncertain and fast-changing times

Course descriptionFor UICC members only badge
The emerging trends of the past few decades have transformed the external environment many organisations operate in; new technologies now influence all areas of social and work life; hyper-connectivity has overturned traditional power structures and created a global network society; complex systemic challenges have shifted expectations on how different sectors and stakeholders must work together to drive social impact.
Through this Master course, participants will take a closer look at some of the emerging leadership and organisational challenges of today: from creating an environment attractive to talent, to developing operational resilience, from planning in the face of uncertainty, to embracing the opportunities of digital, from creating innovations for lasting social impact, to strengthening the collaborative fabric and culture within our organisations.
Framing those challenges within the context of cancer control organisations, the course will combine insights from organisational and leadership experts with perspectives from cancer control leaders and practitioners to provide participants with new ideas and practical tools that can help them make their organisations future-ready now.
