What I Learned about Digital Transformation from Speaking to Hundreds of Leaders

You learn a few things when you spend a chunk of the year on the road attending and speaking at conferences targeting CIOs, CTOs, CDOs (Chief Digital and Data Officers), CISOs and some CMOs. I’ve attended and spoken at over twenty events this year to share insights and lessons from my book, Driving Digital: The Leader’s Guide to Business Transformation Through Technology and presented on several topics around digital transformation, enabling the data driven organization, driving business value with emerging technologies, enabling a culture of transformation and innovation, and creating business and IT collaboration with agile practices.

I recognize that most of you can’t afford to be on the road twice a month, so let me share some insights with you from the presentations I’ve attended, questions I’ve fielded, and discussions I’ve had this year with millennials just entering the job force to CXOs of Fortune 100 companies. I’ll be updating this posts with links to these articles when I publish them. If you’d like to be notified when one of these posts is online, please consider signing up for my newsletter.

Insights from Leaders on their Transformation Challenges

  1. Developing a Strategy for Putting People First in Transformation Programs

  2. We Are Doing Agile, but are not Agile

  3. Financial Practices are outdated for the Transformation Era

  4. We are More Successful Onboarding New Tech Versus Maturing It

  5. If Data is the new Oil, We’re Still Digging Wells

  6. What to do When My CIO Still Doesn’t “Get It”
