Digital transformation isn’t about using new technology; it’s about changing the way you work. It’s about how an organisation adapts to change, develops skills to drive innovation and reinvents itself to maximise opportunities. Change can be hard; however, leaders must be willing to accept change in order to remain competitive, or risk extinction if they can’t adapt to this ever-changing environment.
Digital transformation only needs to happen once because, at its core, it means becoming more adaptive to change itself. And that’s the tricky part. The words ‘digital’, ‘transformation’ and ‘strategy’ can paralyse a company before they even get started.  Achieving momentum, however small, is essential to move forward.
The why
The morning session will examine the challenge of transformation, breaking it down for all those needing to better understand, implement and lead digital transformation in the workplace.
The how
The afternoon session will set aside traditional thinking and outdated strategies to explain what steps need to be taken and introduce a range of (digital) native tools for an organisation to reinvigorate its game plans, build organisational velocity and establish iterative working. 
This course now includes a Design Sprint 3.0™ taster from Design Sprint Academy™.
