Frequently Asked Questions

This would be my first transformation course. What should I start with?
If after reviewing the curriculum of each course you still aren't sure which to start with, we recommend you go for the THRIVE Digital Business Transformation Management course as it gives you the broadest view of transformation. The other courses go deep into specific aspects of transformation.
What is the difference between the courses?
Take the time to read what each course offers. When you have done that you will begin to understand how each course differs from another.
Are the courses recorded or live?
All courses are pre-recorded to enable you to study at the times that are suitable for you. It's no longer necessary for you to have your study time dictated to you, which can often results in your missing classes and feeling stressed about turning up at a time that suits the instructor but not you.
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.
Which organisation has accredited the courses?
No global governing body exists for digital transformation. Universities, business schools and training companies issue their own courses and certificates. Our courses are based on solid research and first-hand practical experience of real-world transformation and are underpinned by two 300-page reference books.
Shouldn't I study through a university?
The education sector has been disrupted, and the days when universities provided the only opportunity for further education are a distant memory. Universities have huge payroll and property costs, which they pass on to students in the form of very high fees. Modern digital business schools like CXO Transform aren't burdened by those high costs, which means you can enjoy more affordable professional development. While universities have been the traditional source of education for young people with limited professional experience, seasoned professionals need to learn from other professionals with extensive real-world experience of transformation.
Can I spread the payments out?
Yes. While you can pay the cost of your enrollment up-front with one payment, you can also spread the cost over several months. Select from any of the options you see on the enrollment pages and pay using your credit/debit card or PayPal. We want to make transformation education affordable, which is why we offer multiple enrollment options.
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.

- THRIVE Digital Business Transformation Management: You need to pass a multiple choice exam.
- Business Transformation Management: You need to pass a multiple choice exam.
- Digital Enterprise Transformation: You need to write a 2,500-word thesis which will be assessed by Professor Uhl.
- Master Black Belt: After a consultation with Professor Uhl you need to write a 7500 word thesis which he will assess.
Will these courses and certificates help me get better roles?
Your professional development is your responsibility. These courses will enrich your understanding of digital transformation and provide you with tools you can use in your work. When combined with your existing knowledge and experience, you can position yourself above those who have not undergone a formal digital transformation education. After completing any of these courses you should be able to clearly articulate specific aspects of transformation. But no one course, trainer or certificate will secure a job for you. That responsibility has - and always will - remain with you.
