LEADERSHIP FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
The Feld Group Institute has created a unique program that supports global corporations in developing next-generation IT leaders. The Technology Leadership Development (TLD) program delivers an accelerated learning path, empowering leaders with a proven framework and the essential skills to position their company for long-term competitiveness and sustainable growth. The curriculum draws heavily upon The Feld Group Institute leadership insights, operational experience, and time-tested strategic framework for enterprise success. Participants are challenged to articulate their learning through individual course work, group activities and discussions with industry leaders.
The program is divided into two separate one-week modules and is structured 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. The curriculum is taught by Charlie Feld and Affiliates of The Feld Group Institute; the Affiliates represent line-leaders, as well as deeply experienced CIOs and CTOs.
MODULE 1: September 25-29, 2017
During module one, participants gain an understanding of the framework used to establish a crucial bridge between business and IT leadership; this includes a common language to discuss contemporary and complex issues. This module focuses on the interconnectedness of the first three IT Transformation Models: the Business Model, the Business Systems Model, and the Technology Systems Model. Case studies and activities illustrate how to pick the “right fight,” set the agenda, and develop a compelling story to paint the vision required for an IT-enabled business transformation.
MODULE 2: November 6-10, 2017
Participants return for the second module to focus on the building blocks of the transformation: the Organization Model, the Economic Model and the Operating Model. Understanding these critical elements positions the 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 business partners while guiding technology teams to success.
