Transformation Leadership Development (TLD) is a program that supports senior-level enterprise leaders in developing the advanced skills required to thrive in today’s technology-driven business climate. We provide an accelerated learning path that empowers participants with a proven framework, guiding principles, and the insight necessary to sustain growth and long-term competitiveness. Participants are challenged to articulate learning through individual program work, group activities, and discussions with industry leaders. These classes are selective to create a unique peer learning community for participants.
Executives choose to attend this class and join this community to become more effective leaders. Participants who complete the program become part of an elite alumni network and peer learning group which is supported by The Feld Group Institute after course work is concluded. Alumni receive monthly newsletters, take part in monthly events, and ongoing professional networking opportunities.
The program is designed around a proven, end-to-end framework with real-world case studies to highlight key principles. Lectures, small group discussions and activities encourage classroom engagement and foster collaboration among participants. Informal events help participants form bonds that continue beyond the completion of the program, and alumni events are offered to allow participants to further network.
During the program, participants develop a common language between business and IT leadership to discuss complex issues. Participants learn how to pick the “right fight,” set the agenda, and develop the vision required for a technology-enabled business transformation.
We begin with a focus on the interconnectedness of the first three Transformation Framework models:
- The Business Model
- The Business Systems
- The Technical Systems Model
We then turn our focus to the enablement models of the Transformation Framework:
- The Organization Model
- The Economic Model
- The IT Operating Model
Understanding these critical elements positions an organization to deliver new capabilities at a high velocity, in a quality manner, while managing costs and eliminating bureaucracy. Discussion shifts to the pacing and execution of the change agenda to ensure real impact. The program wraps up with a focus on leadership to encourage strategic dialogue with key partners while guiding teams to success.
This program combines both self-paced learning and live, practitioner-led modules (via virtual classroom).
The required self-paced learning will focus on foundational elements that participants can complete on their own time. Live sessions will feature lectures, small group discussions, and activities to encourage virtual classroom engagement and foster collaboration among participants.
These sessions will take place October 28 and 29 AND November 5, 6, 12, and 13 from 8:00am – Noon CT each day. Additional optional discussion time is provided daily from 7:30am – 8:00am CT and again from Noon to 1pm CT to allow participants to have access to our teaching staff and additional networking opportunities with their classmates.
