Digital Transformation Management Jobs Pay Extremely Well!
By taking our Digital Business Transformation Course you’ll learn how to lead complex transformation at companies with workforces that range from 500 to several hundred thousand in size.
The fact that 1000’s of transformations are now struggling, stalling or not even getting started, demonstrates the massive shortage of transformation management capability throughout the world. Many senior managers and leaders are suffering because while they understand how to manage and lead their “operational” business, they typically don’t have the time, knowledge, or experience to successfully manage and lead the “transformation” of their business.
By taking this course, you will acquire the broad knowledge you need to confidently convey to companies, why you are the individual they need to help lead or manage their transformation. Transformation that executives need to focus and depend upon in the digital decade ahead – a critical component of their boardroom agenda.
Providing you answer at least 80% of questions correctly in the 60-minute online multiple-choice exam, you will be awarded the Foundation Level Digital Business Transformation Management Certificate. This will immediately add credibility and weight to your CV/Resume, LinkedIn profile, job interviews, internal promotions, and separate you from the crowd.
Your digital certificate will be registered on the BitCoin blockchain, cryptographically signed, and tamper-proof. Powerful social sharing features enable you to quickly promote your credentials across 100’s of social media channels.
Learn the fundamental difference between change and transformation, and how transformation is about creating a new future, without the constraints of the past. You innovate, digitise and transform. While change simply creates a better version of the past.
Learn how transformation requires a fundamental shift in multiple components of an organisation. Governance, mindsets, business models, innovation, digital use cases, etc. THRIVE equips you to facilitate a holistic approach to transformation, and avoid the blinkered and siloed approaches that many take.
Learn how to help organisations respond strategically to the opportunities and threats they are presented with – both inside their organisation, and externally in the market. Also, learn how to encourage appropriate leadership mindsets, workforce culture, and capabilities required to transform strategy into reality.
Learn that while Cloud, Mobile, the Internet of Things and Robotics, etc. can bring about the most rewarding business transformation when used strategically, only through the innovative convergence of digital technologies can companies truly transform through new business models and ways of working.
Understand that transformation happens to create value, and so value needs to be measured, which means transformation leaders need to ensure they are gathering the right data to measure both the tangible and intangible value of digital business transformation, and reporting it to executives.
Learn how transformation must encourage, embrace and educate people from across the enterprise and build a collaborative culture of new capabilities and mindsets. Opportunities to upgrade workforce capabilities need to be identified and people made to feel safe and comfortable about innovation, success and failure.
Learn how in a non-prescriptive manner, the THRIVE roadmap can help you draw upon the six THRIVE guiding principles and the body of knowledge in a way that works best for your organisation.
