We're entering the greatest period of global transformation the world has ever known. The boundaries between office and work, customer and supplier, leader and follower, and the experiences created for both customers and employees are morphing due to rapidly evolving digital technologies. However, digital transformation is more than just digital; digital transformation is about remodeling businesses to be agile, innovative, and customer- and employee-centric at their core, requiring organization stewards to cultivate a new set of skills and competencies to effectively impact business trajectory. In this keynote, Seth Mattison will demystify what digital transformation is and unpack the most pressing challenges facing organizations on their path toward a more agile, innovative, and digitally competitive state.
