Given all the attention that ‘digital’ is getting at the moment, you would be forgiven for thinking that it is something new. Way back in the 1980’s, seeking out opportunities for IT in the pursuit of competitive advantage – what we now call digital disruption – was de rigueur! What seems to have been forgotten are the lessons from these earlier attempts to leverage IT. Unfortunately the history of digital investments in most organizations is far from stellar, with research suggesting overall failure rates still hovering around 70% common.
Quite simply, procession of technology does not automatically confer expected benefits; these benefits have to be unlocked. This 2016 Annual Presidents’ Forum address gets to the heart of the issues in unlocking the benefits of digitalization and it tackles, head on, the challenges of delivering real business value from digital investments.The lecture will be followed by the panel of international leaders, who will present best practices.
