The Next Wave of Digital Transformation -Part 1
In a panel discussion with 140 business leaders, we discussed the future of digital transformation. Based on this discussion, we have produced a whitepaper "The Next Wave of Digital Transformation", available for download below.
Over the past few years, Morgan McKinley’s Breakfast Series have tackled key agenda items in the Transformation space, bringing together the best and brightest from a range of sectors to exchange insights, challenges, trends, and innovative solutions. e set out to tackle "The Next Wave of Digital Transformation", exploring key learnings from the current suite of digital enhancements including both success stories and failures.
Our expert panel, consisting of Kimberly Chang - Partner at Deloitte Digital, Matt Symons - Director at Red Marker and Alex Kok - Head of Digital Delivery at Boral, looked at how organisations can manage the cultural change that comes with the digital evolution and what some of the roles of the future look like. It was an excellent morning with plenty of thought-provoking topics coming out. The variety in backgrounds of our panel made for a great conversation with different views coming across on the topic.
The key takeaway for me was how we as individuals can prepare ourselves for the next wave of digital transformation, with Matt Symons suggesting that everyone should have their own side project where they can learn how to "fail fast". These side projects can help us display how we might be able to adapt to the digital disruption facing many major corporate firms in the coming years.
