Stanford Digital Transformation Certificate

Overview

We're living in a time of continuous change. To thrive in this environment, organizations need to use new technology and methods to continually innovate, to rethink and redesign processes, and to deliver better customer experiences. Digital Transformation provides the opportunity for core business functions to fundamentally change the way work is done so that the organization can grow and remain competitive over time.

It is not a question of "if" your company should take on a digital transformation, but "how." This program provides a comprehensive framework for implementing digital transformation throughout your company. It brings together proven tools and techniques that can be applied across business units — from HR and Finance to Marketing and Product/Service Development to Manufacturing and Sales — to make your company’s transformation complete, sustainable, and effective.

You Will Learn

  • To lead in times of change and uncertainty
  • To collaborate across business units to increase efficiency and agility
  • To analyze your data in new ways to make better decisions
  • To build teams that will excel in a digital culture that brings together new technologies and processes
  • To apply artificial intelligence (AI) tools and approaches to successfully serve your customers and your employees

Who Should Enroll

This program is ideal for both small groups or individuals seeking to instigate change. Whether you bring multiple people from the same department, or engage those across the organization, together you’ll learn the tools to build a strong digital culture across the entire organization, efficiently integrate technology and processes, and design better end-to-end customer experiences.

Take this program entirely online and at your own pace. You can take the courses in any order, although we recommend starting with XDGT100 Foundations in Digital Transformation.

Earning the Certificate

You may earn a Stanford Certificate in Digital Transformation by completing eight (8) courses within the program. For courses of this length (5-8) hours, we recommend planning to spend approximately two hours per week on the coursework, to complete the course within 30-60 days.

Continuing Education Units

By completing each XDGT course, you’ll earn 0.5 Continuing Education Unit (CEU). CEUs cannot be applied toward any Stanford degree. CEU transferability is subject to the receiving institution’s policies.
