Transformation Architect Program

An alarming 72% of IT projects fail to deliver on their actual targets. The Transformation Architect Program is developed for professionals that are leading transformational change in terms of optimization, cost cutting and change management as well as innovation projects like service renewal, improvements and core differentiation development.

It is uniquely designed with training in transformation, innovation and value requirements as well as project mentoring in the participant’s own project. This ensures the highest level of knowledge transfer and skills building to meet todays cross-disciplinary capability requirements for professionals involved in both existing as well as future projects.

The program has been structured to build on the existing capabilities of the practitioner, and to infuse a new way of thinking, working and modelling with transformation and innovation. This is done through intensive classroom training, in-depth tutoring and coaching throughout the program as well as getting hands-on experience where you learn to apply transformation and innovation modelling and architecture techniques.

The Transformation Architect Program including Individual Performance Coaching is offered as a 5 days training program and is designed and certified by the Global University Alliance.
