Economia do Comportamento para Melhores Políticas Públicas
Prazo de inscrição: 27 de Agosto, 2024Nos últimos anos, cada vez mais governos e formuladores de políticas têm percebido que, para serem verdadeiramente bem-sucedidas, as políticas públicas devem considerar a forma como os indivíduos se comportam e tomam decisões. Com essa premissa, este curso se propõe a ensinar os conceitos fundamentais da economia do comportamento e como estes diferem da visão do modelo econômico tradicional. O curso também introduz ferramentas que podem ajudar a promover a tomada de melhores decisões e apresenta casos reais de intervenções em que esses “empurrões” foram usados para aprimorar as políticas públicas em países da América Latina e de outras partes do mundo.

DIGITAL 101 – DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES
The concept of Digital Transformation can be described as adopting business processes and practices to help the organization compete effectively in an increasingly digital world.  This definition of digital transformation has two important implications for managers: First, it means that digital transformation is fundamentally about how your business responds to digital trends that are occurring whether or not you initiated them, like them, or want them.  Second, it means that how an organization implements technology is only a small part of digital transformation. In cases where digital transformation does involve implementing new technologies, technology is only part of the story.  The digital transformation requires that institutions and all its workflows and org charts be transformed in order to build and sustain digital services. Thus, there is a clear need to provide capacity building to all stakeholders in various areas associated with the digital transformation.
