Presentation: Making your digital transformation stick: Evolving your teams from a fixed to a continual improvement mindset

  • All too often digital transformation attempts fail or need to be repeated in a few years.  
  • While organizations often diligently implement new technologies and processes, they often apply the same fixed mindset to these changes. The result – diminished ROI on transformation initiatives, resulting in another large transformation investment in a few years.
