During this workshop, you and your peers will use the lenses to stretch your thinking along new lines and generate exciting strategic insights for innovating around products, services, processes, markets, strategies and business models – to create new value for your customers. Most importantly, you will be able to take away a practical and proven methodology for innovation that you can start using right away inside your own organization.

#511 Digital Transformation: Leading Organisations to the Promised Land
Click here for a Video Introduction from Dan Lefsky.

The past few decades have seen businesses and their leaders become largely buzzword-driven. Each year or two, a new buzz comes out that is going to disrupt the existing model. ‘Disruption’ itself has become too much of a buzzword, and its overuse is diminishing its value. In this session, we will discuss how to successfully drive an organisation forward on digital transformation, and see the value creation promised by Big Data and business intelligence.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) describe the challenges of digital transformation and learn how to successfully lead an organisation to realise its benefits;
(2) identify best practices for managing major digital initiatives, driving adoption, and obtaining stakeholder buy-in.

#516 Digital Thinking as a Change-Booster in the Public and Banking Sectors
‘Digital thinking’ is a commonly used term in today’s business environment. It is increasingly impacting daily business operations. That is why it is essential to pose some vital questions: How does digital transformation impact the day-to-day routines of project managers? Does a change of how business operates impact our project management habits? Shall we stick to well-known and already proven project management approaches? Is ‘being agile’ enough for being the successful manager of the transformational project?


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) generate your organizational-leadership skillset in the world of digital;
(2) illustrate the link between global trends and daily project management activities.
