11:40 AM C1: Why digital transformations fail?

Digital transformation is more important than ever now that we're in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where the lines between the physical, digital, and biological worlds are becoming ever more blurred. But fully 70 percent of digital transformations fail. Why? Tony Saldanha, a globally awarded industry thought-leader who led operations around the world and major digital changes at Procter & Gamble, discovered it's not due to innovation or technological problems. Rather, the devil is in the details: a lack of clear goals and a disciplined process for achieving them. Tony will share more details in this workshop with content covered in his book “Why digital transformation fail”
  • Introducing a five-stage process for moving from digitally automating processes here and there to making digital technology the very backbone of your company
  • For each of these five stages, Saldanha describes two associated disciplines vital to the success of that stage and a checklist of questions to keep you on track
  • Sharing case studies to show how digital transformation can be made routinely successful
