Breakout 32: Harmonizing Digital Transformation: Empower Yourself

Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 15:30

We are at the tipping point of unleashing the formidable power of a harmonized Dx (digital transformation) and the human workforce. It is up to the humans in this equation to embrace change and optimize the power of the new workforce. Fueled by digitization, empowered customers and globalization, new technology advancements pop-up overnight. It's human nature to be afraid of how digital transformation affects our analog lives. We project our fear onto the Dx that's before us and instead of leveraging its potential, we make small, incremental changes to our processes and our products, while keeping an arm's length away from the scary new technology threatening our livelihood. In this session, we will discuss ways to alleviate the mounting Dx fear, share examples of how Dx and human capital work harmoniously together and talk through the importance of setting a clear strategy.

You will learn:

  • The motivation behind Dx and human capital harmonization
  • How to set your Dx strategy
  • How to assess business outcomes
  • How to define expectations for your human talent
