Singapore, 2 of November – Released by the Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE), the Digital Transformation Programme led by Chris Skinner, will be released amid continuous digital transformation in the industry. The live programme will see participants work on a strategy project both through live classes and personal study time.
The acceleration of incumbent banks to try to take the lead in digital transformation has seen an investment of $594 billion in 2022, forecasting an investment that could triple to $1,548 billion in 2027. With a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.1%, the Digital Transformation market forecast is booming.
“Playing a game of catch up, banks and credit unions have accelerated their digital banking transformation efforts. They have invested increasing amounts of capital and human resources into data and advanced analytics, innovation, modern technologies, back-office automation, and a reimagined workforce with a mission to improve the customer experience while reducing the cost to serve.”Chris Skinner, CEO of The Finanser and Best-Selling Author.
Nevertheless, the educational gap, skills and knowledge between traditional and digital finance in the market is tremendous. This is where CFTE comes in. CFTE mission is to provide quality education at scale so that professionals can have the skills and opportunities to get into the new era of finance. CFTE believes that launching this live programme is a remarkable way to unlock the potential of the professionals working in banks who are lacking those skills.
“Adapting to our digital world is more critical than ever. Creating this programme to help professionals learn the skills, it is our purpose at the CFTE to help people and organisations and we’re thrilled Chris Skinner will be leading this programme and to share his excellent knowledge.”Tram Anh Nguyen, Co-Founder of CFTE.
CFTE’s Digital Transformation Programme Director is Chris Skinner, Chief Executive Officer of the Finanser, a research and media firm focused upon Fintech and the future of finance, a best selling author, speaker and keynote at leading industry forums, and regular commentator on BBC News, Sky News, CNBC and Bloomberg.
“As I keep stressing, digital transformation has nothing to do with projects, functions or processes. It is about rethinking the business and rebuilding it from the core. That’s what transformation means…”Chris Skinner, CEO of The Finanser and Best-Selling Author.
The Digital Transformation Programme is experiential and combines both lectures and industry insights from leading experts, with direct mentoring from the Programme Director: Chris Skinner. The Programme is an 8-week programme that gives you the skills and knowledge to grasp this opportunity between traditional and digital finance.
“Digital transformation is one of the most sought after skills in large organisations today and we are delighted to have an experienced leader such as Chris to share his experience.”Huy Nguyen, Co-Founder of CFTE.
This launch comes after the great success of CFTE’s world’s first Fintech Product Manager programme, and the current demand that incumbent banks currently have towards becoming digital. We are glad to keep making contributions to solve the digital skills gap in the industry.
The live programme will be announced at the Singapore Fintech Festival, where CFTE acts as a Knowledge Partner, leading roundtables about the new skills and knowledge in finance to help all stakeholders in becoming a digital-resilient and future-ready workforce.
