Digital transformation is a people business
The Covid-19 pandemic has put the power of technology to transform work on full display. It’s estimated that workplace digital transformation was advanced by up to seven years as a direct result of the pandemic. That means for most organisations, there’s a greater than ever focus on digital transformation. Yet digital transformation isn’t the role of IT – it’s much more about people than technology.
So what is the role of HR and leadership when it comes to digital transformation? This presentation will cover key leadership priorities, tensions to manage and mindsets to hold in order to get the most out of technology in your organisation’s digital transformation journey.
