How Tech Leaders Are Navigating Digital Transformation
There’s no single route to executing a digital transformation strategy: companies that have done this successfully have largely taken one of four very different approaches, studies by the MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research show. This discussion will bring together technology leaders from across industries to explore how an organization’s culture, priorities and resources might influence the choice for how to execute a digital strategy. Attendees will learn how CIOs/CTOs have confronted challenges, chosen effective solutions, and gained influence in moving their companies from strategy to execution.
