New edition Weconomics Certified Program spring 2021

4 Feb 2021

The global corona crisis (lack of reliable data), the social unrest in the US (fake news and disinformation) and the benefits affair in the Netherlands (bureaucracy, complexity and non-transparent algorithms) have not only brought to the surface what was not going well under water for some time. , but also one thing in common: the inadequate organization of the supply and demand of data. And that is exactly what you learn and put into practice in this learning work program: the fundamentally different organization of demand and supply of data with much less friction and in the interest of people and society.

The Weconomics Certified Program (WCP) is a (non-technical) apprenticeship program that focuses on organizing a sustainable, digital and decentralized future with a focus on transformational leadership, transforming companies into network organizations, digital transformation, modern organization science and data technology. It focuses on the design and development of consortia / ecosystems and the implementation of the digital assembly line. By means of this certified program, participants prepare themselves in six months for the role of entrepreneur, trainer, consultant or, for example, transformation lead. The program focuses mainly on perspective change and the design side of network organizations and consists of one day a week of education where in addition to knowledge transfer, cases are also done and knowledge is exchanged.
