During the discussion, we’ll look at how you can engage customers throughout the product lifecycle and how it empowers teams to prioritize and take products to market with speed, agility, adaptability and confidence.
Executing on Digital Strategy in a Multi-Generational WorkplaceShaelyn Otikor10:30 - 11.00The Auditorium
Leading digital transformation across a company that encompasses multiple generations is akin to teaching your grandmother snapshot and explaining to your baby brother why the family sound system still uses a cassette player. Millennials have grown up in a world of digital technology; today’s youth learn how to navigate YouTube videos before they can spell. However, corporate legacy systems, and legacy cultures founded by pre-millennials, have deep roots that are not easily transplanted. In this session we will explore approaches for engaging a multi-generational workforce to successfully disrupt legacy culture and execute on your firm’s digital strategy.
