Transforming your business with cloud technology is about more than just the technical implementation—you also need to enable people, processes and policies to take advantage of it. 

But according to a recent report from McKinsey, skills gaps were among the top challenges preventing organizations from achieving their growth and digital innovation objectives. For example, of the 52 leaders interviewed across 17 industries: 

  • 58% identified a talent gap (including technical and managerial talent)

  • 33% identified change management and implementation complications as challenges

  • 32% identified a gap in executives’ understanding of cloud capabilities and value at stake

In response to these and other skills gaps that we’ve identified, we’ve developed a new business-focused training track tailored to the needs of today’s workforce. This learning track aims to help non-technical business decision makers at all levels—from interns, to individual contributors, to managers, to leaders—develop the knowledge and skills they need to lead and empower their organization’s digital transformation with Google Cloud. 

Available today, we’ve developed four new trainings for business professionals interested in learning more about the cloud. These courses vary in terms of length and format (e.g., on-demand, instructor-led), but they all get your organization ready to get closer to their digital transformation goals.
