Digital Transformation Foundation

In today’s digital age, it is vital for organizations to understand the digital landscape and respond effectively to the need for change and innovation. The ITWNET Digital Transformation Foundation training and certification aims to provide participants with the latest knowledge and understanding required to support, manage, and lead digital transformation initiatives within their organization.

This two-day course equips mid to senior-level managers with the ability to support an organization’s progress by preparing them to move to a digital business model. The ITWNET Digital Transformation certification is primarily based on the Innovation Value Institute’s IT Capability Maturity Framework (Innovation Value Institute IT-CMF Model) and the publication ‘Collaborative Business Design: Improving and Innovating the design of IT-driven business services’ (published by IT Governance). The training and certification focuses on three key areas:

  • Digital readiness (based on the IT-CMF)
  • Skillsets for the digital transformation leader
  • Business service design for digital transformation

The proliferation of a growing range of digital technologies (known as SMACIT social, mobile, analytics, cloud, and internet of things among others)  is profoundly transforming the strategic context of the organization and its competitive environment. By combining the capabilities of these digital technologies with existing competencies, the organization is afforded opportunities to offer exciting new value propositions, improving the integration of internal business capabilities and business partners while enhancing product and service offerings and customer relationships.

For these and other reasons, digital transformation is regarded as being increasingly critical to the organization’s competitiveness and a core enabler of how it operates and evolves.  Nonetheless, the transformation journey is complex for many reasons including the fact that digital transformation requires a distinct evolution from traditional organizational thinking and significant changes to the organization’s traditional ‘modus operandi’.

Therefore, many organizations struggle to effect a successful digital transformation. However digital transformation is and will remain to be a survival imperative for organizations. This Digital Transformation Foundation training course will help to overcome these challenges.
