How to Avoid the Illusion of Digital Transformation
Prof. Joe Peppard, one of the leading digital experts and special guest of the conference, will help us answer the last questions. We’ve asked him to prepare some remarks about the state of digital transformation in companies.
‘One worrying trend that we see is what I call the “lipstick on a pig” phenomenon,’ says Prof. Peppard, adding ‘This is where an organization gives the illusion of being digital. To the outside world, there bay be some shiny new apps, but inside the company is scampering around in the dark. There may be lots going on under the banner of “our digital initiative”, but in reality there is little cohesion and minimal progress is being made. Digital can be exciting, thrilling – but is difficult to achieve.’
Attend the conference, meet Prof. Peppard and other experts, and learn about best practices from first-hand experience!
