Topic Description:
The media is full of buzzwords such as Industry 4.0, Digitisation, Digital Transformation, and Made in China 2025. Clearly, the world is changing rapidly.  Organisations face the challenge of having to deal with the hype / fear-mongering on the one hand and, on the other, the real opportunities and risks of a world being disrupted by technologies at a frightening pace. Many organisations are aware of the need to act, but are uncertain as to where they should start and how the overall Digital Transformation Roadmap should be structured.
This master class is designed provide an “honest broker” perspective on what Digital Transformation means, how it can benefit almost all organisations and what it means in practical terms for the business.

The masterclass will delve into the following three aspects:

  1. Digital Transformation Roadmap – Key steps, milestones, outcomes and Critical Success Factors incl Change Management;
  2. Digital Transformation Building Blocks – Elements necessary to achieving Digital Transformation outcomes, such as sustainable performance improvement, agility and leveraging of data-driven business benefits etc.
  3. Vision and Digital Transformation Journey Initiation – Getting started with platform innovation and Red Teaming best practices as key instruments for ideation and buy-in throughout the Digital Transformation journey

This masterclass will provide you with:

  • A frame of reference for assessing and planning your Digital Transformation Journey;
  • A “de-hyped” view of disruptive technologies supporting today’s business goals;
  • A preview of the transformative effort required to leverage new technologies;
  • A perspective on how to best deal with external parties during Digital Transformation; and
  • A basic tool-kit to initiate and energise your organisation to get started on the journey.

You leave the class with a “real-world” view on what is possible and has to be done.
