One of the biggest mistakes a team can make is to start their Vested journey without being ready. This is why we have created a free online Getting Ready course.
What’s in it for you?
The Getting Ready online course consists of 11 self-paced video topics – each 20 minutes or less. Upon completion you will be able to:
- Understand the five key ”Readiness” factors that lay the foundation for a successful Vested journey
- Complete a Readiness Self-Assessment to gauge your Readiness to kick off your Vested journey
- Learn how to close any gaps you have in Readiness before you start your Vested journey, including how to use resources and tools to help you close the gaps
- Learn from common pitfalls others have experienced so you can avoid similar mistakes
- Get to some tips and tools for setting up the project administration aspect of your Vested journey
This course comes with 10 essential tools you will use to complete the necessary deliverables to ensure you are ready to start your Vested journey.
As you work through the tools you will close any gaps you have in your readiness as well as create a project plan and identify who should be on your Deal Architect Team.

“HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE TO DO THIS COURSE?”
This course consists of 11 self-paced online topics each less than 20 minutes. The online portion of the course will take less slightly over three hours to complete. However, you will need additional time to work through the toolkits and create the deliverables. The time will vary significantly based on how many gaps you identified based on your Readiness Assessment.
In large and complex relationships we have seen organizations take up to six months to close their gaps in readiness. However, we have also seen partners efficiently close their readiness gaps in a one day workshop with the right stakeholders in the room. If you are under a time pressure we highly recommend working with a Vested Center of Excellence to facilitate a Readiness Workshop.
HOW DOES THE GETTING READY ONLINE COURSE WORK?
Register by clicking on “Take this Course” at the top of the page. Once you sign up for the free course, you will receive an email with instant access to the course. You can complete the online topics at your own pace and go back as much as needed to review previous topics. The course comes with a toolkit to help you get ready for your Vested journey.
