I highly recommend the Digital Transformation course offered by the University of Waterloo to anyone currently involved in the digital transformation process in their workplace. This course provides an excellent overview of the technology and the current strategies to implement digital transformation. In particular, you will find the case study simulation very engaging and informative.
Great program where you get to find out about real world success and failures and academic theory behind digital transformation. Great course to put in everyone's toolbox to prepare ourselves for any future involving any kind of transformation.
This course blended the theoretical and practical really well - everything from avoiding the "bright shiny objects" on the path to transformation, to how to raise the right discussions with leadership, and keys to success for engaging employees and technology. Not every transformation will succeed - but with this course and learnings in hand, our chances of success improve!
The pandemic has accelerated the pace of digital transformation and, in the future, it will become inevitable.

I would like to sinerely thank Dr. Peter Carr, WatSPEED, and OSPE for diligently pioneering this excellent and extremely beneficial program.
The course provided me a platform for intellectual deliberation on digital transformation. I met many interesting people in the program and it offered me a great opportunity to network with other like minded people who had a similar background. The instructor, Peter Carr, is very approachable and does everything to resolve queries and provides ample support.
Peter Carr is an exceptional educator in the domain of digital transformation.
