The Changing Shape of Digital Transformation in the Post-COVID-19 Era

Our world is rapidly, exponentially and perpetually changing. This has never been more evident than over the last several months; every notion of business is evolving as a result. Now more than ever, digital transformation is vital to the future of your business. The truth is, even before COVID-19, the business world was changing at a pace that was hard to keep up.

Those businesses that had already embraced a culture of change and realized their digital transformation goals might have been better prepared for this disruption than others. For others, it’s been a challenge. This does not mean you should hunker down and wait out COVID-19, it’s time to rev up your digital engine and position yourself for growth when the pandemic subsides.

In this session, Chris will explore:
  • What COVID-19 means for digital transformation
  • The new stages of digital transformation and how to move through them effectively
  • The most common pitfalls that organizations experience during digital transformation and how to avoid them
  • The post-COVID-19 digital era and how to harness technology and innovation to lead your organization into the future
