Integrated Innovation and Disruption at Target

In 2015, Target CEO Brian Cornell committed $7 billion to refurbish Target’s 1,800 stores and revamp its digital operations, including investing in new technology like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics. But the key to success lay in Target’s workforce of 323,000 people. “One of the lessons I’ve learned over the years—it’s easy to design a strategy, but it all comes down to execution and outcomes,” Cornell told Fortune. “And, ultimately, the plans have to be owned by the team. It always comes down to people.” The four sessions in this track will expand on the keynote session, How Target Made Tech Simpler, Better and Faster for its “Guests” and Team, and provide an integrated view into the digital transformation underway at Target.
