What is the workshop about?

Digital transformation involves much more than simply taking a business online or investing in technology. A true transformation requires organisations to consider how their people and processes will work with the technology to manage and develop the business efficiently. Digital transformation also requires the management of a wider range of performance measures and data analysis to measure the impact on sales, supply, production and employee productivity and satisfaction. Business operations data at every level must be integrated into the transformation, in order to develop a systematic and accurate strategy, encompassing the entire business.

Many small-to-medium sized enterprises invest in technology in areas such as IT, advertising and marketing. However, areas such as management information, strategic thinking and human resources are also important to consider. This workshop will explore how high-growth companies approach digital transformation, so that you can learn how this might be beneficial within your own business.
