About Flevy Executive Learning

Flevy Executive Learning is a series of online management education programs. We help leaders of tomorrow—i.e. those on track to the C-suite in the next 1-5 years—accelerate their career growth to become successful business executives. The focus of each program is on execution, implementation, and application—not on theory. All programs are led by former executives who have "done it" before. Each program is comprised of both Learning & Application (L&A) lectures and Q&A discussion sessions; and will draw extensively from the instructor's real-world experience as a business executive.

About Our Program: Transformation Leader's Guide (The Online Course)

First, please note this a 10-week program and thus follows a different schedule and format than the typical 7-week FEL programs. It does not include a Q&A session. For full details, please refer to the Additional Program Information section.

The Accelerated Corporate Transformation (ACT) methodology is a proven, enterprise-level process architecture. It enables an executive leader to rapidly orchestrate the launch of the next major phase of his or her organization in a simple, high-engagement manner to achieve breakthrough results.

The ACT methodology has been successfully implemented in some of the most iconic Corporate Transformations, including Apple, General Electric, IBM Global Services, Symantec, National Semiconductor, Office Depot, PricewaterhouseCoopers, PGA Tour, Rockwell International, Infineon Technologies, Southern Company, and Black & Veatch, as well as a number of emerging high-tech companies.

The ACT process architecture has been designed to quickly focus, align, and engage the full organization and then rigorously follow through for execution. It was also designed to be run by business leaders with light consulting and implementation support the first time through. ACT allows managers at all levels to effectively lead Organizational Transformation and Strategy Execution on their own, and it becomes part of a more rigorous management process by the end of the first year of implementation.

The proven ACT methodology succeeds because in each case, it adapts to the organization's specific Transformation challenges, supports leaders at all levels in the organization, creates well operationalized Transformation initiatives, aligns all subunits and engages all employees, overcomes the major "inhibitors" to Transformation launches, and quickly brings about breakthrough results.

The origins of ACT may be traced back to an innovative executive program chaired by Robert H. Miles at the Harvard Business School. The program invited CEO, business presidents, and their teams to the Harvard campus for 2 weeks, during which time they worked together to help each leader develop a plan for dealing with the major challenge confronting their organization. Executives and their teams returned to campus 9 months later to explore what they learned from trying to overcome their Corporate Transformation challenges. Follow up with these corporate teams and research conducted on their patterns of successes and failures formed the foundations of the ACT methodology.

Our program materials are structured into 10 modules.

  • Module 1: The Transformation Leader's Challenge
  • Module 2: The Transformation Leader's Accelerators
  • Module 3: The Foundations of ACT
  • Module 4: Structure Your Transformation Launch

  • Module 6: The Focus Phase
  • Module 7: The Align Phase
  • Module 8: The Engage Phase
  • Module 9: The Execute Phase
