Blockchain for managers

Among the disruptive technologies that are revolutionizing the economy, blockchain is at the top of the list, alongside artificial intelligence, in terms of its ability to arouse interest, curiosity and concern.

Introduced to simplify banking transactions by way of cryptocurrency, blockchain technology can also be applied to any field where there are multipartner processes involving data collection and interaction by human operators (pharmacies, online advertising, insurance, the music industry, real estate, building management, public works, energy and more).

But what is this technology exactly? What kind of benefits could it have for your organization? What are the concrete applications? This course will answer these questions and more.
