Digital Transformation Workshop

26-27 November 2018

Many of the world’s best organisations now recognise the need to transform – if they are to survive and thrive in the new digital economy. The challenge for most organisations that were well-established before this new era is “what to transform and how?”

While the threats of disruption become a reality as we see more companies suffer their fate, the opportunities to transform using digital are greater now than ever before. And it is these opportunities and threats that organisations need to consider before defining their digital transformation journeys.

During this 2-day interactive workshop, Transformation Advisor Rob Llewellyn will introduce six guiding principles of digital transformation and engage delegates in a series of group exercises to consider some of the questions that every leader should be mindful of – as they steer their organisations into the early years of the digital economy.
