Driving Digital Transformation with Organisational Alignment

When transformations struggle to succeed, it is not because they were executed poorly but because of lack of strategic alignment from the start. Avoid this pitfall by managing the change and aligning the entire organization on the goals of the transformation. It’s a simple idea but not easy because it requires a complete rethinking about how organisational alignment is achieved.

Organisational alignment is a fundamental prerequisite for any digital transformation. Collaboration and the exchange of ideas in teams can help to increase innovation and help individuals make more effective use of new technologies. Today, let us discuss how organisational alignment can be achieve through different teams and departments, especially in organisations where hybrid work has been widely adopted as the norm.

Discussion Questions:
– What strategies are the most effective in driving effective organisational alignment?
– What can leaders do to empower their employees with the clarity of their impact towards organisation initiatives?
– What are the tools that can enable alignment to help drive transformation initiatives in the organisation?

15:15 - 16:00 | Roundtable Discussion

How Collaborative Partnerships Matter in the Era of Digital Transformation

Discussion Questions:
– What is the purpose of your brand to search for partners in digtalisation? Why type of partnerships are you having?
– How do you build trust with your digital transformation third-party partners?
– What are the common goals between your brand and the partnerships?
