  • Digital Transformation is about how the business is looking to align with a strategy to fundamentally change how it operates, engages with its customers to deliver value and competes in the market.
  • The process of digital transformation has to deal with uncertainty and responding quickly to change.  As a result, traditional hierarchies and organizational structures get in the way. It’s best to establish a cross functional product team that’s kept somewhat separate from the rest of the organization with it’s own decision authority and then scale this to the rest of the organization once it is implemented successfully.
  • The approach to the design of technology solutions that enable this transformation needs to  be very customer (consumer, employee, client) centric with a deep understanding of user motivation and needs.

Presenter
Christine Miles, Founder & CEO, EQuipt, LLC
