HERNDON, VA and DURHAM, NC – January 11, 2022 – Duke Corporate Education (Duke CE), the premier global provider of leadership solutions in non-degree executive education, today announced its partnership with Learning Tree International, the leading skills training and development partner to more than 95% of Fortune 500 organizations. Together, Duke CE and Learning Tree are launching their Transformational Technical Leader (TTL) experience, which focuses on cultivating key leadership skills technical leaders need to navigate evolving market shifts, drive organizational change, and develop team transformation that leads to market success. The partnership combines decades of practical academic and professional expertise to train the next generation of technical leaders.

The Transformational Technical Leader (TTL) experience will leverage Duke CE’s cutting-edge blend of business and university research with learning methodologies dedicated to leadership development. It combines Learning Tree’s extensive leadership training, hands-on experience, and knowledge to infuse the program with an invaluable perspective that allows technical leaders to execute and align team goals with organizational objectives.

The collaboration marks the first partnership between both industry leaders and offers a dynamic opportunity for technical professionals around the world.

“Inspired leadership requires interpersonal skills that should not be left to on-the-job learning,” said David Brown, Learning Tree’s CEO. “This timely certificate program with Duke Corporate Education not only addresses the needs of project managers and executives, but also gives technical professionals the tools and techniques to excel and advance as team leaders.”

Duke Corporate Education CEO Sharmla Chetty adds, “Building adaptive leaders is at the heart of what we do because change and sustainable implementation cannot happen without great leadership. To thrive, organizations must move faster and be more adaptive. In our view, leaders are the real levers of change to make this happen. We are eager to work with Learning Tree to develop solutions for tomorrow’s technical leaders.”
