Frequently Asked Questions

I haven't taken a transformation course before. What course should I start with?

Over 90% of people start with the THRIVE course. Some people progress from there to the Black Belt Program, while others find that THRIVE gives them all the knowledge they need in their current role.

Are the courses recorded or live?

All courses are pre-recorded, which enable you to study at the times that are suitable for you. It's no longer necessary for you to settle for classes that suit the organiser.

Are there any prerequisites to take any of the courses or Belt programs?


Can I start by taking one Green Belt course, then decide whether to go for my Black or Master Black Belt later?

Yes. The learning program is very flexible.

How many courses (with exams) do I need to do to get a different Belt?

To get a Green Belt, you need to take any one Green Belt course.

To get a Black Belt, you need to take three Green Belt courses.

To get a Master Black Belt, you need to take three Green Belt courses and the Master Thesis module.

Do I have to take all courses?

No. Everyone has their own personal goals and aspirations for their professional career. It's possible that one course is all you need to perform at your best in the type of role you undertake. On the other hand, if you aspire to be among the world's top 5% of transformation professionals, you should aim to become a Master Black Belt.

Is there any supporting material for the courses?

We recommend you acquire certain books, which will complement your knowledge in line with the course you are taking. These are solid reference books based on various frameworks, methodologies and research which you can use in your day-to-day work as a transformation professional.

Which organisation has accredited the courses?

No global governing body exists for business transformation. Like many universities, business schools and companies, we issue our own courses and certificates. Our courses are based on a combination of real-world transformation experience and academic research.

Shouldn't I study through a university?

Most seasoned professionals have moved beyond university level education. A number of university professors take our courses to be better equipped in their teaching roles.

Why are the courses less expensive than those provided by universities and business schools?

Old brick and mortar businesses typically need customers to pay for their huge property and payroll costs. CXO Transform is a digital business, which doesn't need to pass on such costs. We practice what we teach.

I've already taken one of the Green Belt courses above. Can I get a discount on others?

Write to [email protected] explaining what course you are already enrolled in and which other courses you would like to take. One of the team will come back to you with the options available to you.

I've already taken the THRIVE course. Does that count in the Belt Program?

No. THRIVE is based on a set of principles and it provides a very broad and high level understanding of Digital Business Transformation. The Belt Program goes much deeper into key areas of transformation. e.g. In the THRIVE course we cover BTM2 in a single 10 minute lesson. While our dedicated BTM2 course is based on over 300 pages of documented transformation methodology and contains many hours of video lessons.

What will I need to do to get my certificates?

We have adopted a variety of methods to evaluate the knowledge acquired after taking each course.

- DMI: You need to pass a 75 minute multiple choice exam of 75 randomly selected questions. Pass mark is 80%.

- THRIVE: You need to pass a 60 minute multiple choice exam of 75 randomly selected questions. Pass mark is 80%.

- BTM2: You need to pass a 75 minute multiple choice exam of 75 randomly questions. Pass mark is 70%.

- Digital Enterprise Transformation: You need to write a 2,500-word thesis which will be assessed. There is no time limit.

- Digital Customer Centricity Management: You need to read a case study and answer questions about it in 150 minutes.

- Change Management Deep Dive: You need to read a case study and answer questions about it in 150 minutes.

- Master Black Belt Thesis: After a consultation with Professor Uhl you need to write a 7,500 word thesis which will be assessed. There is no time limit.

Will the courses and certificates help me get better roles?

No course or certificate will secure a job for you. That responsibility will always be yours. These courses will equip you with the knowledge you need to guide and advise medium to large enterprises on how to plan and undertake transformation. When combined with your existing knowledge and experience, you can position yourself above those who have undergone little or no transformation training.
