Digital Transformation is occurring within many industries.
A digital transformation is no longer an option, but an imperative. Recent research has found that in the three years, firms that led their industry in enterprise technology adoption grew two times faster than laggards. Today, they are growing five times faster. The risk is no longer merely getting left behind, but being eliminated.
Make no mistake, however, digital transformation is not just about technology. Success involves far more than simply procuring competent vendors and doing some user training. These initiatives can no longer be left solely at the feet of technology leaders and IT staff but must involve a diverse set of ecosystem stakeholders.
We’re desperately in need of a shift in focus. We need to do more than just implement technology. Basic objectives such as cost optimization and process improvement can no longer be the ultimate aim. Leaders must inspire and empower their entire organization to boldly reimagine their work environment, customer needs, product offering, and even the purpose of the enterprise.
Organizations are responding to the challenges of digital transformation with mixed results. While some are achieving record success, many organizations have seen little or no impact from the digital transformation initiative.
This CPE business management webinar will discuss the eight core principles that best-practice organizations have adopted. With each principle, an example will be provided to illustrate the application.
