Digital Transformation: The Bear in the Room
Real transformation comes from tackling problems that matter, and yet too often time and resource is wasted on ‘elephant in the room’ type problems.
To create lasting innovations with wide-reaching impact, you have to instead tackle ‘the bear in the room’.
In this talk based on her internationally acclaimed book Digital Transformation, Lindsay is determined to set the record straight about what real transformation is, and how every organisation can achieve it.
Lindsay will reveal the three critical rules for achieving real transformation success. In each, she'll share her own hard-won lessons leading major innovations globally, as well as from company leaders worldwide.
You’ll leave with practical advice, inspiring examples, and the cautionary tales needed to turn your organisation into one capable of tackling bears and adapting to change itself.
