Disruptive business models

Traditional industries are being challenged by disruptors who reinvent business models and challenge the current modes of operations. Learn the strategies that can help disrupt and transform your organization in times of great change.

Technological tools in practice

Exponential technologies such as Artificial Intelligence are transforming society and business at an increasing pace. Learn how organizations can utilize these technologies to generate growth in the digital age.


Stellar Capacity's programs are powered by our unique methodology which includes:

Interactive learning and neuro-smart anchoring of knowledge to produce learning that lasts over time
”Peer-to-peer learning” – active learning and networking with other participants to deepen as well as broaden the knowledge gained

Frequently Asked Questions

I work full time; can I still take this course? When do I need to be available?

You can certainly join the program while working full time, but each program day includes up to 6 hours of live, instructor-led training. Work outside of the live events can be done at any time which suits your schedule. 

Do I receive a diploma after the course?

Participants who complete the course receive a certification from Stellar Capacity, and join the ranks of distinguished alumni from companies like Scania, ABB, Ikea, Volvo Penta, and others. 

I would like my employer to fund my participation. How does this course provide value for my organization?

Many of our participants ask their employers to sponsor their participation; others invest in their education themselves. Inquire with your HR representative or your manager about what programs your organization offers to support learning. The program provides actionable education that you can implement immediately and share with your team, disseminating new knowledge and insights in your network.

Can I attend by myself?

You can of course attend the program by yourself, but it can be beneficial for multiple managers within your organization to attend together as part of a team for driving organizational change. 

What are the qualifications needed to attend?

Ideal candidates will have demonstrated extraordinary leadership, the drive to innovate, and the capability to succeed in a rigorous academic program. Candidates usually hold undergraduate degrees and have at least ten years of working experience, however we will consider candidates without degrees or with fewer years of experience if they have demonstrated exceptional abilities in other endeavors.
