What you'll learn

Whatever your role, the growing importance of automation can’t be ignored. In this short, fast-paced Executive Briefing, you’ll quickly ramp up on automation—what it means, how to think about it, and how to implement it. First, we’ll begin with automation from “the bottom up” — starting with your own life and work, and expanding on those ideas to apply them to your team and organization. We’ll then dive into different types of automation — including Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Intelligent Automation and Hyperautomation. Finally, we’ll explore automation strategy, best practices and approaches. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have a much better understanding of how automation can add incredible value to your team or organization.
