Digital Enterprise Transformation

Digital Transformation Green Belt Certificate


Enrollment Begins 6 July

Introductory Belt Program Discount Available Until 9 July


This course will help you develop an independent understanding of competition and strategies in the digital economy.


This course is suitable for experienced business and technology managers and leaders who are responsible for orchestrating transformation in medium to large organisations, along with consultants who provide advice and guidance to such organisations.

The course has been developed specifically to help modern managers, leaders and consultants who want to acquire a rich understanding of how to help organisations take advantage of digital economy opportunities, while protecting them against the threats.


Unlike most courses, frameworks, and theories about digital transformation, the Digital Capability Framework referred to in the course is extensively documented in the 300-page book "Digital Enterprise Transformation".

While the book is neither included or necessary for the course, it would serve as a valuable supplementary reference for course participants.

The book provides a comprehensive summary of strategic digital knowledge collected by thought leaders from well known universities such as University of St Gallen, University of Queensland and the University of Liechtenstein, as well as from experts from global enterprises like Hilti, Daimler, Walt Disney and SAP.

The course contains some of the very latest digital transformation research available in 2020. The book complements that with scientifically proven knowledge around the Digital Capability Framework and additional real-world examples of it being used.
