Become a certified transformation architect

Certified Business Transformation Architect

Harness the power to future-proof your business

Digital development is accelerating, and customer demands are increasing. The competition is so fierce that only those who can continually transform their business will stay relevant. All development needs a guiding hand – Cordial has the toolbox for that. The Certified Business Transformation Architect programme gives you deep knowledge of enterprise-driven business development from a business model and architecture perspective.

In the Certified Business Transformation Architect programme, you gain a solid understanding of modern strategy development through an in-depth study of business models and business architecture. The programme joins its strategic agenda together with your own operational structures, such as processes, organisation, governance, and IT. You learn methods for analysing and designing your business with precision to ensure maximum value creation for your customers, as well as a high degree of flexibility in your organisation.

Over time, whoever succeeds in sustainably future-proofing their business models will win. You assure your ability to not only design but also realise your vision through a development method based on business cases. This allows you to steer toward a clear goal with an agile approach as you implement your design.

As a transformation architect, you become an expert on the bigger picture. You build competencies to forge the direction and navigate that path in a smart, speedy, and safe manner. It’s a unique role with the ability to weave together your strategy and your enabling structures.

Realisation of business models (Days 7–8)

By pinpointing a robust plan for your transformation, you can realise new aspects of your future business model portfolio through business case-driven development. With this approach, we ensure flexible and effective management that lets you achieve your desired result for transformation.
