“I chose to participate in the certification because I wanted expertise and tools that could help me in the dialogue with customers to understand where they stand in relation to their own wishes for digital transformation. This has proven to be very useful in relation to the customers I work with, both in relation to digital maturity and skills they should possess. It has created good dialogues and concrete things to address.”

"I chose to get certified for at least two reasons. First because my clients get the opportunity to support the dialogue about digitization with data.
And second because it gives my clients peace of mind that we are grounded in research and solid frameworks.

Security and trust in the frameworks, tools, and consultants are crucial for the customer when we work with digital transformation."

With a Certification in Digital Leadership, you can help others in developing digital mindsets be it employees, managers, or organizations and make digitalization an integral part of your business strategy. The organizations you work with will be better qualified for the changes that follow from the digital agenda.

Consider for a minute:
  • How can you assist your organization to develop a common language for Digitalization?
  • How do you create digital mindsets amongst executives and leaders?
  • How do you evaluate the organization's current digital maturity and capability for digital transformation?
  • How can you use data to accelerate the organization's digital maturity and analyze test results, and present results to others?
  • How do you frame the ambition for digital transformation? Which strategic action points does your organization need to execute?
  • How can you plan, run, or facilitate a competence development process in your own organization?
  • Has your organization subscribed to DI2X' tools and Resource Center and wants in-depth knowledge and documentation about the frameworks "Digital Maturity" and "Organizational Capabilities“ and use of the tools?
If you answer yes to more than one of the above, then the certification is the right choice for you or your employees.

On the certification program, you will work with:

  • The two frameworks:
    Digital Maturity” and “Organizational Capabilities
  • Two multiple choice tests, one on the understanding of the frameworks, and one on the familiarity with the use of Tools
  • Case-work using the tools in real-life setting
  • >Dialogue-based presentations and plenary debates


Who can participate?

The certification program is designed for consultants (internal or external), business developers, HR-partners, digitization agents, project managers, process and change consultants, and managers in private companies and in the public sector.

Practical completion

The two-day course is held in Aalborg, Denmark. During the course you will learn about and discuss the two frameworks, try the tests yourself, and learn how to analyze and use test-results.

The first day of the course focuses on the framework: Digital Maturity and Organisational Capabilities. The second day of the course focuses on DI2X tools and different applications. You will work on an analysis of test results and case development and learn how to use the tools as well as the materials in the resource center.

After the two course days, you will answer a multiple choice test consisting of 30 questions. The test takes about 15 minutes to complete.

The next two months you will work on a case in your own organization, or at a co-operation partner, where you use the frameworks, the DI2X tools, and test results.

The certification program ends with a half-day virtual workshop. Here you present your case and demonstrate your communication skills about the frameworks, the tests and test-results, your own learning, and the learning of others. Beforehand you will have to hand in a fulfilled template about your case and answer a multiple-choice test about the use of Tools.


Certification is accomplished after passing the multiple-choice tests and delivering a good case presentation at the workshop. If one of the tasks above is not passed, it is possible to purchase a re-examination for each of the assignments.

You will receive a certificate valid for the current version of the certification throughout the calendar year you are certified and the following calendar year. Are you certified e.g., in 2022 - then your certification is called: ‘DI2X-Certification 2022-2023’.

Keeping your knowledge up to date

With a valid certification, you have access to the “closed” certification section at the DI2X Resource Center, as well as all updates of the frameworks and tools. We'll keep you updated on new materials, updated research-based knowledge, overview of new certified people in your new network, updated cases, and invitations to webinars.

Renewal and re-certification

When your certification expires, it can always be renewed. An update requires participation in a one-day program in December and subsequent passing of a multiple-choice test before the certificate can be renewed.
