Digital Transformation Seminar Series

This 100% remote, low-cost, low-intensity training program walks you and your team through the transformation process at a pace that can be integrated into your existing workload. You’ll learn how to build change into your workflow in six two-week modules delivered in a group Seminar format, brainstorm experiments with your own team, and compare results with your fellow teams working in parallel.
