It became known on May 21, 2020.

During entrance tests which will take place online potential participants of a rate will provide the idea of the transformational project or will describe the project of digital transformation on which already work. In addition to studying of the theory, participants of a rate are waited by team work on projects which will be organized remotely.

Work on projects in groups ― the most important part of a rate, as these projects not educational: each of them will come for protection and will receive estimates of independent experts. The best initiatives directed to real digital transformation in a state administration and the different industries will have sales opportunity. Considering need to save high quality of group work taking into account features of an online format, we use additional infrastructure and we involve in cooperation of experienced moderators and experts who will accompany listeners during all rate, creating a common information space,
comments the director of the Center of executive training of digital transformation Ksenia Tkachyova.

In the nearest future occupations will take place in an online format, however in process of mitigation of quarantine measures and improvement of an epidemiological situation listeners will be able to be trained also in an intramural and extramural format.

During a rate government employees study work with data, study architecture of IT systems and also "soft skills" (soft skills), such as ability to gather a team develop and to organize joint work, skills of project management and others.

Researchers of our center studied experience of digital transformation of the different countries, and on the basis of data retrieveds drew a conclusion that it is not enough to involve good developers to full transformation and creation of high-quality state services and to create the modern platform. Successful digitalization of a state administration is impossible without reorganization of business processes, change of an organization culture of departments, preliminary process optimization. In order that graduates of the Center successfully developed the projects, it is necessary to give them the corresponding methodical and managerial tools regardless of held in the position given the moment,
