Are there any prerequisites to join the program?
How long does each course take to complete?
This depends on the plan you join with and the study schedule you adopt. Keep in mind that the ability to understand and learn what is taught in the program varies from one person to the next. On average, our high performers (who purchase full access) take 2 to 3 months per course. Some need less time, while others take much longer.
Is this the most comprehensive online portfolio of business transformation education in the world?
If I join with a subscription, do I have to study the course content as per the schedule shown above?
No. The schedule shows when you get access to new course content. When you study it is entirely down to you. You manage when you study, not us.
If I join with one of the monthly subscription plans and I cancel, what happens?
One month after the last payment you made, you will lose access to the program.
How can I make quicker progress than the subscription plan offers?
Make full payment for full access or enroll in 3 individual courses (one at a time).
Is there any supporting material for the courses?
You need to buy your own copy of the BTM2 reference book. We also recommend a second reference book.

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.
Shouldn't I study through a university?
Universities are helpful for young and inexperienced people. Seasoned professionals need a more advanced level of business education. Many university lecturers take our courses to become better equipped teachers.
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 BTM2 course is based on over 300 pages of documented transformation methodology and many hours of lessons in which Rob Llewellyn challenges Professor Uhl on many aspects of the transformation and the BTM2 methodology.
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.
- BTM2: You need to pass a 75 minute multiple choice exam of 75 randomly selected questions.
- Change Management Deep Dive: You need to read a case study and answer questions about it in 150 minutes.
- Digital Enterprise Transformation: You need to write a 2,500-word thesis which will be assessed. There is no time limit.
- Customer Centricity Management: You need to read a case study and answer questions about it in 150 minutes.
