Webinar: Navigating Digital Change
Start Date: 06 May 2020
Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Time: 1:00 PM
Duration: 1 hour
More and more of the change we navigate as both individuals and within our organisations have a predominantly digital focus. The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic has showcased the value of IT and digital transformation to organisations and how individuals depend on digital services. The IDC estimates spending on digital transformation will reach worldwide spending of $2.1 trillion by 2021 (source: www.idc.com). Ensuring we implement digital change effectively and deliver appropriate change management activities to ensure it sticks, requires a unique approach to ensure they deliver the anticipated functionality and benefits from operating in an increasingly digital world.
In this webinar, we are joined by two Consultants from Oaklin, an independent management consultancy that specialises in navigating complex digital change agendas. Katie Kelly (Change Management SME at Oaklin) and Chris Tuck (Oaklin’s Head of Digital Transformation) will be joined by Steve Harris (Head of Digital, Marketing, and Integration for SSE Energy Services) to explore how organisations can make the most of their digital investments, put them right if at first they do not succeed, and enable real adoption across their teams.
