Demystifying Digital Transformation

Charlie Feld, award-winning CIO, shares his personal leadership insight, expands your understanding of digital transformation, provides a way to identify and eliminate blind spots, and introduces a flexible framework leaders with different perspectives, backgrounds and incentives can align on.

The Transformation Framework

Impactful and sustainable digital transformation requires a core group ‘Game Changers’. We’ll show you how to identify these high value individuals, set the stage for change, and begin delving into the Feld Group Institute Transformation Framework™.

The Business Model

Turn good business strategy into prioritized, orchestrated and executable business transformation. Learn how using a ‘business capabilities’ mindset will help you translate important requirements for the organization and set you on a path to real agility.

The Technology Model

Learn how architecture is built for sustainable innovation and explain to leaders at all levels why it’s critical to business agility. Delve into technology architecture in a way both business and IT leaders understand, and begin bridging the gap between these organizations.

The Organization Model

Underestimating change required to address company culture and its workforce during transformation will result in failure. Getting leadership right in a matrixed organization requires team building, but also teaching leaders how to work together in a new, more flexible way to achieve the future vision of the organization.

The Economic Model

Measuring the productivity of technology is critical. Shift your view of technology from ‘function’ to ‘fabric’, and create a holistic view of your digital operating platform as a place where investments can be made in multiyear, sustainable campaigns that deliver strategic business value.

The Operating Model

The planning process in most companies prevents leaders from incorporating the agility necessary to create a change-ready organization. Change your lens and mindset about planning, and provide a framework to gain the required velocity and quality to drive transformation.

Putting It All Together

Empowered with a durable framework built on practical experience, and a set of principles to guide you, now learn to put it in motion, stay on track, avoid common pitfalls, and challenge you to lead your organization forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Feld Group Institute is a leadership development organization with one mission – to help corporations achieve technology-enabled business transformation. We provide training, workshops, and consulting from experienced CIOs, technology leaders, industry experts, and business strategists. Together, we share first-hand knowledge of how transformations should be planned, led, and executed. Learn more about us here.

We focus on helping “business” leaders understand and own “just enough” about technology transformation, while helping “technology/IT” leaders understand how to better communicate, lead, and connect the dots outside the IT domain. Bridging this gap, and the many natural blind spots that occur across groups of leaders, is foundational to successful transformation. We believe you’ll gain great benefit from the lessons, frameworks and principles we share in this course. If you’re interested in learning more, please visit our programs page or contact us for more information.

Each individual seat purchased allows one individual access to this video course for a full year from the time of activation. Watch any and all of the videos included in this course once, or as many times as you would like during that period.

Individual seats can be purchased for $495 online and an access code will be generated for that individual to access the class for the term of the activation period. Team plans apply to groups of ten or more individuals, may be discounted, and will be invoiced separately. Access codes for team plans will be provided to the team’s coordinator for distribution. Team plans also come with an admin portal that allows centralized distribution and tracking of access codes, by individual seat, for the team. Contact us here for more information about team plans.

Yes, if after you have purchased seats in a team plan, you decide you would like to add additional seats, you can do so by having the team coordinator contact us directly.

If after the initial activation period you would like to continue your access to the class, you can reactivate your access code for additional time for an additional cost.

We offer a number of exciting in person and virtual programs for senior-level leaders of digital and business transformation including Transformation Leadership Development, Operationalizing Enterprise Architecture, Operationalizing Business Architecture, and private group classes.
